Halo stars in Andromeda Galaxy
Halo stars in Andromeda Galaxy (M31), Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image. Spiral galaxies, like M31, have a spherical halo of stars surrounding them. The stars in the halo are less densely packed than in the spiral arms or nucleus (neither seen). This view shows a small part of the halo, containing an estimated 300, 000 stars. Also seen, are distant galaxies and a globular cluster (bottom centre). This is the first time M31's faint halo stars have been seen, allowing their ages to be estimated and providing evidence for past galactic collisions of the Andromeda Galaxy. Image created in May 2003, using the HST's Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).

HST deep-view of several very distant galaxies
Distant galaxies. Hubble Space Telescope (HST) deep-view image of several thousand never-before seen extremely distant galaxies. This is the deepest view yet into the universe. The most distant of these galaxies are around 12 billion light years away, meaning their light has travelled across about three-quarters of the known universe to reach Earth. These galaxies lie in the southern constellation Tucana. This image, the Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-S), was produced by the Hubble Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) after a ten-day exposure in October 1998.
