Hubble press release (http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/newsdesk/archive/releases/2005/20/): Hubble Spies a Zoo of Galaxies


Gazing deep into the universe, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has spied a menagerie of galaxies. Located within the same tiny region of space, these numerous galaxies display an assortment of unique characteristics. Some are big; some are small. A few are relatively nearby, but most are far away. Hundreds of these faint galaxies have never been seen before until their light was captured by Hubble.

It says some are nearby but most are far away. Does this mean that they aren't confined to the same region of space but the same region of the sky (kind of like optical binaries)?

JWST.

I'd like to paper the roof of my room with this pic to look at it when lying in my bed
