The most distant object you will ever see with your naked eye is also in tonight’s sky. It’s the Andromeda galaxy (get an expert to help you find this one). It’s 2.5 million light years away. Mastodons roamed around North America when the light we see tonight left the Andromeda galaxy 2.5 million years ago.
