(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new image of a galaxy construction is coming from the farthest reaches of space.

What astronomers nicknamed Sparky is a dense collection of millions of rapidly forming stars.

It is so far away that the light we're seeing from it took 11 billion years to reach earth.

The image gives astronomers new insight into how stars, galaxies, and the entire universe is formed.
