Distribution of galaxies where each point is an individual galaxy, colours represent their distance from Earth. Sloan Digital Sky Survey via The Conversation

Astronomers have uncovered a near-record breaking supermassive black hole, weighing 17 billion suns, in an unlikely place: in the center of a galaxy in a sparsely populated area of the universe.

Astronomers have uncovered a near-record-breaking supermassive black hole, weighing 17 billion Suns, in an unlikely place — in the center of a galaxy in a sparsely populated area of the universe.

Each dot in this picture indicates the position of a galaxy 6 billion years into the past....

Astronomers from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III) just made the 'largest-ever' universe map that displays million galaxies.

pp: Endless: This all-sky view of the entire near-infrared sky reveals the distribution of galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The image is derived from the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog, which contains more than 1.5 million galaxies, and the Point Source Catalog, which holds nearly 500 million stars within the Milky Way. The galaxies are color coded for distances obtained by various surveys. The nearest sources are blue, moderately distant sources are green, and red represents the farthest so

This is What 43,000 Galaxies Look Like On a Map. The most complete map of our local universe to date. It took more that ten years to create, has 43,000 galaxies and extends out 380 million light years from the earth.

Galaxies on a Map. The most complete map of our little corner of the universe to date. It took more that ten years to create, has galaxies and extends out 380 million light years from the earth. The coordinates of each galaxy was recorded

This stunning spherical image manages to cram in the entire universe, including our Solar System at the centre. The mind-boggling image also packs in the outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Cetauri star and the cosmic web along with the Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy and other nearby galaxies
