Afzal captured this stunning night view of Broad Peak and Gasherbrum IV from Concordia - looking closely I noticed that the Andromeda Galaxy - which is two million (2,000,000) light years away - is in the frame!
The "W" of Cassiopeia is shown as a reference, the Andromeda Galaxy looks like a star until you look more closely and notice it's really "fuzzy" compared to the actual stars in this image. It's the horizontally-oriented patch of light indicated by the ellipse in this image.
Congrats, Afzal - my favorite image on SP!
