Mind-blowing: Astronomers discover galaxy construction in farthest reaches of space


Astronomers say they have made an incredible discovery in the farthest reaches of space.

NASA released a new image of what’s called a galaxy construction, which was seen by the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes, as well as observatories on the ground.

Scientists say this is a dense collection of millions of rapidly forming stars.

Astronomers have nicknamed the discovery “Sparky.”

The galaxy construction is so far away, the light took 11 billion years to reach Earth.

Astronomers say the cluster will give new insight into how stars, galaxies and the entire universe formed.
