This is what the Andromeda Galaxy would look like in the night sky if it was bright enough to be seen with the naked eye.

Compare with the Moon just to the lower left. I had read enough times of descriptions explaining how 'big' Andromeda would appear to be, if only it were bright enough to be easily seen and identified, and I could never make any sense out of it (and quite naturally, I was always virtually dying of curiosity to find out, every time I happened to dwell on the subject).
Now, someone has gone to the trouble to create a lifelike picture of our twilight sky with a beautiful reproduction of a proper-sized Andromeda superimposed. My immediate reaction was, 'I never realized it would appear that big.'

There is a discussion of the original image at Yes, That Picture of the Moon and the Andromeda Galaxy Is About Right

I looked into this one a bit and found that at least in some cases it appears there may have been something pre-installed with the OS.

Tnx! Now all I need is some kind of freeware to tell me where and when to find it in the night sky at my location. My EZ Cosmos stopped working with Windows 10.

I got Aladin, C2a and Stellarator from this site. I scanned them with ESET NOD32 and Malwarebytes and they ran in Windows 10 with the latest version and updates. Aladin needed Java and Stellarator needed Python 3.2 or later. There were other freeware planetarium programs there also.
