The Universe is Awesome

This site is absolutely amazing:  UDF SkyWalker

The Ultra Deep Field obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope is the deepest view into the sky by humankind to date. The 10,000 galaxies that are visible have distances out to times where the universe was just 800 million years old, one seventeenth of its current age.

If you move the green circle to a dark area of the sky, it's astounding how many unseen galaxies appear. Or if you put it on one of the brightest "stars," the detail of some of the galaxies is breath taking.
