This galaxy – NGC 2336 – is around 100 million light years from earth. It is also huge, like 200,000 light years across.
Let me see:
The speed of light is 186,000 miles a second.
There are around 31,360,000 seconds in a year.
So the distance we are talking about (in miles) is around 186,000 x 31,360,000 x 100,000,000! I’ve broken 15 calculators and three cylinders in my brain trying to figure this out!
And I have no idea how to write the answer if I ever did get it.
