Dark galaxies of the early Universe (cutouts)

This image shows 12 close-up images of dark galaxies. These are essentially devoid of stars and would normally be invisible to telescopes. However, their gas is being illuminated by the intense light from a nearby quasar, making them visible to the VLT.
