That is an interesting one.

Appears also that a tidal tail remnant from its initial formation days may have been recently found around Andromeda.

Our Galaxy's history appears to have been rather dull & boring compared with the largest member of the local group so the results of dwarf galaxy shell remnants is interesting.

The Halo may have been a vast dome and this may have been how our galaxy and earth began. The Bible calls this a firmament.
