Thanks to Mack Frost, this is the Andromeda Galaxy apparently. Beautiful.
Hey you're keeping me honest here, that's great.
Ah, but you CAN see it with the naked eye. This is the Andromeda Galaxy, the brightest member of our "local group" of galaxies, other than our own Milky Way Galaxy. This is the farthest object that can be seen without the aid of optics.
