The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has caught the most nitty gritty picture yet of a nearby neighbor of the Milky Way — the Triangulum Galaxy, a spiral galaxy situated at a separation of just three million light-years. This all-encompassing overview of the third-biggest system in our Local Group of worlds gives a hypnotizing perspective of the 40 billion stars that make up a standout amongst the most far off objects obvious to the bare eye.

The new picture of the Triangulum Galaxy — otherwise called Messier 33 or NGC 598 — has an amazing 665 million pixels and exhibits the central locale of the galaxy and its internal spiral arms. To join together this enormous mosaic, Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys required to make 54 separate pictures.
