    Zoom in on CLASS B1608+656: This video begins with a view of the night sky before zooming in towards galaxy cluster CLASS B1608+656. It homes in first on a view of the area around the cluster from the Digitized Sky Survey (produced with a ground-based telescope), before focusing on Hubble observations of the cluster. ubble's very long exposure (14 hours) combined with advanced instrumentation and a unique location above the distorting atmosphere means that its observations are both much sharper and much brighter than those taken from the ground-based telescope. Hubble's image is clearly visible as a square of brighter galaxies near the end of the zoom video.Credit:NASA, ESA, Digitised Sky Survey 2, N. Risinger (skysurvey.org) Music: movetwo

    Pan across CLASS B1608+656: Hubble's images might look flat, but this one actually has a remarkable depth of field that lets us see more than halfway to the edge of the observable Universe.Most of the galaxies visible here are members of a huge cluster called CLASS B1608+656, which lies about five billion light-years away. But the field also contains other objects, both significantly closer and far more distant, including quasar QSO-160913+653228 which is so distant its light has taken nine billion years to reach us, two thirds of the time that has elapsed since the Big Bang.Credit:NASA, ESA
