The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has spotted the most distant galaxy ever seen.
The infant galaxy is named GN-z11, and it's unusually bright. According to a press release, astronomers say they're seeing the galaxy "as it was 13.4 billion years in the past."
Astronomers technically found the galaxy before this, but the telescope's new camera allowed them to take more precise measurements on how far away it is.
