300,000 Possible Galaxies Discovered

A project helmed by an international team of astronomers has resulted in the discovery of some 300,000 “previously unseen light sources” that are believed to be distant galaxies. This new map of the night sky was revealed using the incredibly powerful Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) telescope, with many of the light sources sending radio signals for billions of light years until they reach Earth. (One light year is approximately 5.8 trillion miles or 9.5 trillion km.) With the wealth of knowledge these discoveries may offer, we could see more information about black holes, magnetic fields and more. Read about it at Daily Galaxy.
