Hubble Deep Field Details

Representing a narrow 'keyhole' view stretching all the way to the visible horizon of the universe, the HDF image covers a speck of sky a tiny fraction the diameter of the full Moon. This is so narrow, just a few foreground stars in our Milky Way Galaxy are visible and are vastly outnumbered by the menagerie of far more distant galaxies.
