The astronomers did not go looking for it but they ended up finding a new galaxy which has as many stars as Milky way. This is the first time the scientists were to see a galaxy of this size in the nascent stage of development. The new monster galaxy is extremely active and it is forming new stars at 100 times the rate of Milky Way. Previously known galaxies were all discovered when they were already mature.
