Part of the Hubble Deep Field, 1995. Hubble Space Telescope (HST) deep-view image of several hundred extremely distant galaxies. This image is the lower left segment of the original Hubble Deep Field (HDF) survey of 1995, at the time the deepest view yet into the universe. The most distant of these galaxies are around 12 billion light years away, meaning their light has travelled across about three-quarters of the known universe to reach Earth. These galaxies lie in the northern constellation Ursa Major. This image was produced with data from the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) after a ten-day exposure in December 1995.
