Faint Red Galaxy in the UKIDSS Ultra-Deep Survey
Zooming into one tiny section of the UKIDSS Ultra-Deep Survey, revealing a faint red galaxy which is believed to be at a distance of 12 billion light years. The full survey covers a region approximately four times the area of the full moon. The colour image was produced by combining infrared data from UKIDSS with optical imaging from the Subaru telescope (courtesy Professor Kazuhiro Sekiguchi).
