Zooming in on the most distant quasar found so far

This sequence starts with a wide-field view of the prominent constellation of Leo (The Lion). As we zoom in many fainter stars become visible as well as a few of the many galaxies in this part of the sky. We gradually close in on the most distant quasar found so far. The final view, combining images taken in both visible and infrared light, shows the very faint quasar, which is powered by a black hole with a mass two billion times that of the Sun, as a faint red dot.
