English: This artist’s impression shows how ULAS J1120+0641, a very distant quasar powered by a black hole with a mass two billion times that of the Sun, may have looked. This quasar is the most distant yet found and is seen as it was just 770 million years after the Big Bang. This object is by far the brightest object yet discovered in the early Universe.
Español: Esta impresión artística muestra cómo se vería ULAS J1120+0641, un quásar muy distante alimentado por un agujero negro que posee dos mil millones de veces la masa de nuestro Sol. Este quásar es el más distante encontrado hasta ahora y es visto como era tan sólo 770 millones de años después del Big Bang. Este objeto es ampliamente el más brillante descubierto en el Universo primordial.
