Andromeda’s actual size…

Humility: Andromeda’s actual size, not accounting for the fact it is 2.5 BILLION LIGHT YEARS away, compared with the moon's 238,000 MILES away. It contains a Trillion stars, while our galaxy contains at most a half a billion stars... And some on earth delude themselves that they are the center of Everything.
