NASA-HS201427a-HubbleUltraDeepField2014-20140603

A further addition to the magnificent series of deep field pictures from the Hubble telescope allowing us to look back in time up to 13.2 billion years, to only 450 million years after the beginnings of our universe.
This beautiful picture is in the southern-hemisphere constellation of Fornax. For the first time it includes the full range of ultraviolet to near-infrared light. This field of 3.4 arcminutes along each edge contains an estimated 10,000 galaxies and will be used in the search for the earliest to form.
