How far is the deep field galaxies from Earth?
In December 2012, scientists reported the discovery of seven primordial galaxies by the Hubble Space Telescope, which are more than 13 billion light years distant from the Milky Way. The findings are based on a scan of the same section of sky known as the Ultra Deep Field (UDF) (UDF).
How far away is Arp 273?
Arp 273 is a star system in the constellation Andromeda that is approximately 300 million light-years distant from the planet Earth. The picture depicts a fragile tidal bridge of material connecting the two galaxies, which are separated by tens of thousands of light-years from one another in space.
Who discovered Arp 273?
Located 300 million light years away in the constellation Andromeda, Arp 273 is a pair of galaxies that are interacting with one another. A description of the galaxy was initially published in the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, which was produced by Halton Arp in 1966.
What is the farthest thing we can see in space?
This galaxy is the furthest object in space that can be seen with only your eyes in the night sky, and it is located in the constellation Andromeda. We are looking at a massive spiral galaxy, and it is the nearest big galaxy to us other than the Milky Way.
Is the Andromeda galaxy in the Andromeda constellation?
Several satellite galaxies orbit the Milky Way, which forms part of the Local Group of galaxies, which in turn forms part of the Virgo Supercluster, which is itself a component of the Laniakea Supercluster. The Milky Way is also a member of the Local Group of galaxies, which in turn is a member of the Local Group of galaxies. It is expected to contain between 100 and 400 billion stars, as well as at least that many planets.
