If you've never seen this picture before, it's the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, one of the most famous pictures in Astronomy.

Quote:
Located southwest of Orion in the southern-hemisphere constellation Fornax, the image is a bit over 3 arcminutes across and covers 11.0 square arcminutes. This is just one-tenth of the diameter of the full Moon as viewed from Earth, smaller than a 1 mm by 1 mm square of paper held at 1 meter away, and equal to roughly one thirteen-millionth of the total area of the sky.

The HUDF is the deepest image of the universe ever taken and it will be used to search for galaxies that existed between 400 and 800 million years after the Big Bang (redshifts between 7 and 12). The furthest object located as of 2011 was UDFj-39546284 at a time of 600 million years after the Big Bang. The red dwarf UDF 2457 at distance of 59,000 light-years is the furthest star resolved by the HUDF. The star near the center of the field is USNO-A2.0 0600-01400432 with apparent magnitude of 18.95.

The field imaged by the ACS contains over 10,000 objects, the majority of which are galaxies, many at redshifts greater than 3, and some that probably have redshifts between 6 and 7. The NICMOS measurements may have discovered galaxies at redshifts up to 12.

Looking at this, I can't believe I got caught into the hype of SC3. Played it once and never again.

You're in luck, I looked earlier and couldn't find it and I had given up. Just remembered another place I may have saved it and I found it, here you go.

I would guess Switzerland as well.

With an off chance of Germany or Northern Italy.
