An Amazing Picture

This may not look l like much, but it is damn fascinating.

Astronomers at Hawaii`s Gemini Observatory have taken a picture of the furthest known object ever to be recorded.

The picture is from a gamma ray burst. This particular one is 13 billion years old. That means we are seeing it just as it happened 13 billion years ago.

It is also 13 billion light years from Earth. One light year equals 6 trillion miles.

Truly astounding.
