In December 1995 the Hubble Space Telescope was pointed at a very dark part of the sky about the size of a tennis ball as seen from 100 metres.

This tiny part of the sky was located in Ursa Major (also called The Plough in the UK or the Big Dipper in the USA.)

After taking 10 days and 342 exposures of the same area this photograph appeared.

Almost everything on it is a galaxay at the edge of the universe (3000 of them), each containing billions of stars.

Three years later it did the same to a similiar patch in the southern hempisphere and produced a similiar picture.

Recent evidence shows many stars have planets, possibly the majority of them.
