This new Hubble eXtreme Deep Field (XDF) image going 13.2 billion years back in time, and contains about 5,500 galaxies, in a much smaller field of view than previous surveys. The faintest galaxies are one ten-billionth the brightness that the unaided human eye can see!

An animation of the new Hubble XDF, which took 10 years to assemble.
