Sky Islands

Taken on Mt. Lemmon near Tucson, Arizona. The "other" side of the Milky Way has it's beauty too... Among many other things, it has the Andromeda Galaxy (located in the top right corner). To the naked eye, it just looks like a blurry-ish star... and it is kinda. Only this is a group of a trillion stars that is located 2.5 million light years away, and is at least 2x bigger than our galaxy! Makes you wonder whats really out there... smile emoticon Oh, and its headed straight for us.
