      In this animation depicting what the night sky from Earth might look like 3.75 billion years from now, the Andromeda galaxy fills the field of view and the Milky Way begins to show distortion from Andromeda's gravitational pull.

      View from Earth when the Andromeda galaxy will collide with the Milkyway

    • Natasha Biacchi

      astronomers can now predict with certainty the next major cosmic event to affect our galaxy, Sun, and solar system: the titanic collision of our Milky Way galaxy with the neighboring Andromeda galaxy. The Milky Way is destined to get a major makeover during the encounter, which is predicted to happen four billion years from now. It is likely the Sun will be flung into a new region of our galaxy, but our Earth and solar system are in no danger of being destroyed.
