The Hubble eXtreme Deep Field (XDF) image, released in 2012, is our deepest optical view of space thus far. It shows over 15,000 galaxies from 13.2 billion years ago. Due to the length of time it takes light to travel, many of these galaxies no longer exist. If viewed from earth, the XDF image would take up about as much of the sky as one-tenth of a full moon.

Hubble sees 'deepest-ever' view of cosmos

Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2014 - Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have assembled a comprehensive picture of the evolving universe — among the most colorful deep space images ever captured by the telescope. - Image Credit: NASA, ESA et al

The farthest cosmic lens yet found, a massive elliptical galaxy, is shown in the inset image at left. The galaxy existed 9.6 billion years ago and belongs to the galaxy cluster, IRC 0218.

Of the thousands of photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, one stands out as the shot that changed astronomy forever. Called the 1995 Hubble Deep Field , it captures thousands of galaxies in a single shot, and was the first photo of its kind...

It’s perhaps one of the most famous images in astronomy. The Hubble Ultra Deep Field displays nearly galaxies across the observable Universe in both visible and near-infrared light.

An image taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, floating in space nearly light-years from Earth.

These two photographs were made by combining data from NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer spacecraft and the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile to learn that not all galaxies make stars of different sizes in the same quantities.

The star in the center, known as Cyg and located in the dark cloud LDN 981 is a T Tauri — or Young Stellar Object — that is starting to contract to become a main sequence star similar to the sun.

Wild Duck Cluster (Messier 11) ~ Open cluster or galactic cluster, located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation of Scutum (The Shield). The Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile has taken this beautiful image, dappled with blue stars, of one of the most star-rich open clusters currently known, being almost 20 light-years across and home to close to 3000 stars.

Similarly, the fuchsia blobs on this image are regions of intense X-ray radiation, thought to be black holes that formed when two galaxies (the blue and pink rings) collided.
