Coyote Angel, from The Milagro Beanfield Wars

The farthest galaxies, a few of the very faint red specks, are seen as they appeared more than 13 billion years ago, or roughly 650 million years after the Big Bang. This mosaic spans a slice of space that is equal to about a third of the diameter of the full Moon (10 arc minutes).Now multipy that number by the number of fields left still to photograph……Magic Carpet Ride Stuff….
