to this page is an image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope
Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2. It is an accumulation of 276
frames taken between December 18 to 28, 1995. It represents a
narrow `keyhole' view stretching all the way to the visible edge
of the universe and covers an of sky 1/30th the diameter of the
full Moon. This is so narrow that just a few foreground stars
in our Milky Way Galaxy are visible and are vastly outnumbered
by the menagerie of far more distant galaxies.
