Hubble (sorry not Carl)

This is off topic but I saw this image of a galaxy cluster taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and had to share.

It's hard to get your mind around the fact that each one of these bits of light is a galaxy containing millions or even billions of stars. Then try to imagine the vast distances between the stars within the galaxies and between the galaxies themselves. Very humbling indeed.
