Ancient city of 'modern' galaxies: May be most distant galaxy cluster ever detected


Yesterday, a Texas A&M University used the NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and found what could be the earliest and most distant cluster of galaxies ever detected. There are nearly 60 galaxies that are almost 10 billion years old. The modern appearance has the scientists in shock. The big collection is a red color. These galaxies are normally typical of present-day galaxies.

My opinion is that it actually is older, but the scientists think it is modern day. By its color, it seems modern day. The red color could also be an old star that they have just now found. I believe that the stars could be modern day or old. It is up to the scientists to see which one exactly it is.
