Beyond our Solar System

 

TelescopeBeyond our Solar system


The stars you see at night are mostly from our galaxy - the Milky Way. 

 

The Milky Way is just one of many millions of galaxies in the Universe.  Some of the galaxies are so far away that they appear in the sky as small fuzzy points of light.

The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is the result of over four months of staring at just one small patch of sky.

The result of the observation was an image containing an estimated 10,000 new galaxies.
