This is an animation of the new Hubble eXtreme Deep Field, which took 10 years to assemble, with over 2 million seconds of exposure time by Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and its near-infrared Wide Field Camera 3, were combined to form the eXtreme Deep Field , or XDF. The XDF is the deepest image of the sky ever obtained.
It adds another 5,500 galaxies to Hubble’s 2003 and 2004 view into a tiny patch of the farthest universe.
