Who needs a telescope when we can use our eyes to explore the night sky? One of the farthest space objects that we can see completely unaided is the Andromeda galaxy. It’s only 2.5 million light years away, making it the closest spiral galaxy to our Milky Way. Star Gazers host Trace Dominguez shines a light on Andromeda and what makes it so unique.
