Submission + - Hubble and Spitzer Telescopes Find Most Distant Galaxy Yet (space.com)

Penurious Penguin writes: At a distance of 13.3 billion light-years from Earth and approximately 600 light-years wide, the MACS0647-JD is the most remote galaxy yet discovered.

Space.com has an article on the subject along with a video locating the galaxy in the general direction of Ursa Major and Polaris.
