Distribution of galaxies

Maps of the distribution of galaxies in the VVDS-Wide survey, showing the presence of large-scale structures. The colours indicate the density of galaxies — going from green to blue, the latter being the densest regions. The data have been cut into three cones, from the closest galaxies (bottom) to the farthest. The sample includes galaxies whose light travelled between 1.3 and 8.5 billion years.
