Hi everybody! After some time reading you I decided to join the forum. Since a few days ago I'm looking for information but I cannot find anyting... hope you can give me a hand! What I'm trying to do is a list of the farthest known astronomical object per year of record. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light-year#Farthest_known_astronomical_objects_per_year_of_record Yeah, it is for this small website who never have heard about before :tongue2: Probably I should remove Abell 1835 IR1916 because it was not confirmed, but what about the years between 1800 and 2000? What was discovered back then? Galileo was busy looking to the solar system, was someone else looking farther away?
