Hubble captures the widest image of COSMOS field in infrared

This is a recently released Hubble's image of the COSMOS field - part of the sky used by astronomers to study the distant universe. It contains pictures of many galaxies, some of them with redshift over 2. That means their light has been stretched by the expansion of the universe into the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

The COSMOS (Cosmological Evolution Survey) is a part of the sky several times bigger than the disc of the full moon. Hubble’s view is much narrower though, so astronomers have to put together hundreds of images to see the whole picture.
