Great Andromeda Galaxy or M31 is between 2 and 3 million Light-years from the Solar System and is the largest Galaxy in our local group. Yes, the Great Andromeda Galaxy is even larger than our Milky Way galaxy. 
Light from the Great Andromeda Galaxy has been traveling well over 2 million years before it reaches our eyes and our Telescopes. (The Great Andromeda Galaxy is just visible if you know where to look) The Andromeda Galaxy may collide with our galaxy in a few thousand million years.
How in all of space did this light manage to reach us if the universe is only a few thousand years old as Young Earth Creationists believe? And there are very many galaxies much further away than the Great Andromeda Galaxy. Young Earth Creationists don't have an easy answer to the distant Starlight problem, that's part of the reason many of them don't like the Theory of relativity.
