(DESCRIPTION) 
 Many galaxies in space. 

Text, Abell 2744 Parallel Field. This is the parallel field for galaxy cluster Abell 2744 from the Frontier Fields program. 

Scattered throughout the image are roughly 10,000 galaxies, some never before seen in such detail -- some never seen before at all.
