This is what happened when the Hubble Telescope stared at a section of the dark night sky for 11 days.  The area you see is one thirteen-millionth of the total sky.  In that tiny bit of the heavens you're looking at, we found over 10,000 galaxies.  Each galaxy has between ten million and 100 trillion stars.    However small you think you are, you cannot imagine how much smaller you actually are.

The Most Important Image Captured By Hubble - GREAT video of what the Hubble discovered when aimed at what appeared to empty space, without any stars

This is the Hubble deep field image.  This is a blip in the sky where the Hubble telescope didn't see any stars.  Everything you see in this image is a galaxy.  Astronomy is a huge hobby of mine; I volunteer at the Chico Observatory as often as I can.  Some people look at the stars and feel infinitely small, and that makes them feel insignificant.  An accident in the mess of space, others look at the stars and know exactly how important we are.

Now, THIS is really fascinating - it's rather dazzling to see it presented  this way.   I Certainly thought this was enlightening. Beyond our SUN....... IT'S A BIG UNIVERSE.  ANTARES IS THE 15TH BRIGHTEST STAR IN THE SKY.   IT IS MORE THAN 1000 LIGHT YEARS AWAY.   NOW HOW BIG ARE YOU?   NOW TRY TO WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND THIS..... .......   2nd last picture.....  THIS IS A HUBBLE TELESCOPE ULTRA DEEP FIELD INFRARED VIEW OF COUNTLESS   'ENTIRE' GALAXIES BILLIONS OF LIGHT-YEARS AWAY.
