The LMC as it appears in visible light. The galaxy's most prominent object is the sprawling Tarantula Nebula (middle left), the largest star factory in the LMC and the most active star-formation zone among the dozens of galaxies that make up the Local Group, which includes our own Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy (M31). The LMC is about 14,000 light-years across.
