 The background 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.
