This is the deepest image of the universe ever made at optical and near-infrared wavelengths. A galaxy, named HUDF-JD2, was pinpointed among approximately 10,000 others in this small area of sky called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Using data from NASA's Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes, this galaxy was identifed as one of the most massive distant galaxies ever seen.

This image is a false-color composite of Hubble/ACS visible-light data with B-band data colored blue, V-band data colored green, and R-band data represented as red.
