    Now press these thoughts against of Chapter 3 of Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" --> We can't see the edge and the edge is moving away: Hubble's redshift.

    Imagine someone 14 light years away from us, thinking that you can't see past 13 billion light years wondering if there's someone past the time boundary we can't see beyond. And there's probably someone who is 28B light years in the same direction- thinking that there have to be galaxies well beyond what they can see- twice the time boundary that can be seen.

    It's incomprehensible when you start to think about how many stars there are in just the Milky Way, and then how many galaxies they estimate there to be...

    Perspective. The entirety of the image is 2.4 arc minutes across. That is the size of the smallest crater on the moon that you can resolve with the naked eye.

    That's is how big the visible universe is.
