Hubble Approaches the Final Frontier: The Dawn of Galaxies


Video: HUDF Zoom

Running Time: 1 minute

This "zoom" starts in the Fornax constellation and pushes through deeper and narrower telescopic fields to at last reach Hubble's Ultra Deep Field, where astronomers have identified 108 very distant galaxies. The zoom reveals the locations of the 108 galaxies, then it pushes farther into the field, showing a close up of three representative candidates.
