Do you wonder “How far can I see?” It is a function of the apparent brightness of the object, how bright it appears to us here on Earth. This in turn depends on your eyesight and how clear and dark your skies are.
If you find a dark sky far from city lights and wait at least 30 minutes for your eyes to adjust, you should be able to see the Andromeda Galaxy. This is a galaxy similar to our Milky Way, but it is 2.4 million light-years away. The light you see left there 2.4 million years ago. This time of year, it is rising in the northeast at about midnight. This would put it almost overhead at 5 a.m.
At this time, due to the virus, the observatory will be closed at least until October. We are all anxious to be open again, but health is more important.
