What are the different types of galaxies near the earth?
The earth is in the Milky Way galaxy, which is a spiral galaxy. At the center of our galaxy is believed my many scientists to be a super-massive black hole.
The closest galaxy to our own is called Andromeda, and it is a spiral galaxy as well. However, Andromeda is slightly larger than the Milky Way.
Other types of galaxies are elliptical and irregular.
I hope that helps!
P.S. Andromeda and the Milky way are expected to collide in around 4.5 billion years, forming a large, elliptical galaxy :)
