Spot on :smiley:.

Shows how sound information gets mangled on the web though - this object is actually 500 light years away and half a light year across as opposed to the highly innaccurate information in the facebook page link. The latter, worryingly, has had thousands of "likes" and shares :rolleyes2:

Well, the image does not match, but there are voids in universe - areas where there are significantly lower number of galaxies. There are many of these around us.

Most galactic clusters and super clusters are organized in kind of web - filaments, and between those there are voids.
