That is a large galaxy in my book, which is actually a pretty short book.

I can see apparent "rivers of stars" with dark material or space between.

We still have not the ability to measure the stars, only guesstimate.

There are way over Avogadro's number of stars in the universe.

Not all the dots will be stars in the Andromeda Galaxy, some will be galaxies(note Galaxies, not stars) on the other side of the Andromeda Galaxy..........

Huge and Awesome doesn't begin to do it justice......

The word has yet to be invented. Sort of like one of the many words for "snow" in Eskimo.

Last time I checked, lunar dust sticks to everything, especially space suits.
