It was formed just 700 million years after the big bang, and was a cauldron of star production, churning out new suns hundreds of times faster than our Milky Way galaxy, an unexpected discovery. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

Laying on my back as a young kid always made me happy, for some unknown 'reason.' And to this day, learning about the vast unknown sky, - still makes me happy.

Thanks for the twinkling of a new far distant galaxy, Kayleen! & and Happy Friday, Oct. 25th, 2013, All.
