The Triangulum galaxy M33 in the constellation triangulum. It is the third largest object in the local galaxy group with a diameter of 50kLy behind the Andromeda galaxy (150kLy) and our home galaxy, the milky way (100kLy). The triangulum galaxy has a distance of appx. 3MLYrs. Due to its large size, the surface brightness of this object is rather low, so that it is quite hard to be observed visually. Some reddish star forming H-Alpha regions can be seen through the galaxie’s arms.
