I know I had a picture of galaxies last week, but I could not resist the sheer joy of this image, as if the universe were throwing the best New Year's Eve party ever.
The Hubble image shows a random patch of sky, containing thousands of galaxies. The curves and squiggles are nearby asteroids photobombing the deep space image, like astronomical confetti.
