How would other galaxies appear to move relative to Earth if the universe were shrinking?
If the Universe was shrinking the galaxies would appear to be moving towards the Earth, and look more blue than they should. This is the opposite to the universe expanding where galaxies would appear to be moving away from the Earth, which we know due to "red shift". Andromeda would be the exception since it's directly moving towards the Milky Way.

Why the universe keep on shrinking?
In the beginning there was nothing then the big bang happened. The universe expanded at an incredible rate before beginning to cool down. Then matter formed. Eventually the expansion will stop and the combined gravity of the universe will draw the universe back to nothing causing it to "shrink". Although this is one theory there is another that says the universe will never stop expanding due to a substance called dark matter (the opposite of gravity) pushing it ever outwards.
