hi,

this difference occurs due to the Doppler,s effect.

the increase in wavelength is also called , red shift because the spectrum seems to be shifted towards red . this happens due to the relative motion between source & receiver. if source  approaches towards the receiver , the observed frequency will increase & if it recedes then the observed freq. will decrease (& so, wavelength would increase ). in this case the galaxy must going away from us  .
