Caption: Most distant galaxy in 2004, Very Large Telescope (VLT) image. The galaxy, IR 1916, is circled in the upper images. It is 13.23 billion light years away. This makes it visible in infrared, but not in visible light (lower left image). The galaxy is made visible by gravitational lensing. The foreground galaxy cluster Abell 1835 acts as a lens, focusing light from the galaxy beyond it.
