The triangulum galaxy is also a representative of the local group and is about 2.9 million light years away. It is only about half the size of our Milky Way and also contains only 1/10 of the stars (5x1010). Very clearly one can see in M ​​33 star formation areas, so called H-II regions. One of the largest of these H-II regions is located NW of the center, close to the edge of the disk.
