Hubble Telescope Pictures

Source: Mashable, May 2017

The Hubble Space Telescope has given us many incredible views of the universe. From stars and nebulas shining hundreds of light-years away, to views of closer cosmic objects like Mars and Jupiter, the Hubble provides frequent reminders of just how small we are.

The image reveals new details of a huge cluster of galaxies called Abell 370, which is located about 6 billion light-years away from Earth. 

While at first you might think that the densely packed objects shining against the blackness of space in this photo are stars in some cluster in the Milky Way, in reality, every single one of them are galaxies.
