Difference between Andromeda Galaxy and NGC 147

Andromeda Galaxy vs. NGC 147

The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as Messier 31, M31, or NGC 224, is a spiral galaxy approximately 780 kiloparsecs (2.5 million light-years) from Earth, and the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way. NGC 147 (also known as DDO3 or Caldwell 17) is a dwarf spheroidal galaxy about 2.58 Mly away in the constellation Cassiopeia.

Similarities between Andromeda Galaxy and NGC 147
