Seen from the outskirts of our own Milky Way Galaxy, at lower left in this artist rendering, seven billion years from now the Universe will appear frozen in time as we look out onto space. Only the light from the local group of galaxies will remain visible to any creatures inhabiting our galaxy. The galaxies included in this view are M77 located upper left, M33 upper center, M74 lower left of M33, M31 lower right center, and NGC 147, lower right.
