The farthest known object from Earth is the galaxy UDFj-39546284 at 13.2 billion light years away.  From Earth it appears as it did “only” 480 million years after the Big Bang.  It is also the oldest known object in the universe.
Depicted: An object so far away that we are only able to see it as it was about 10 billion years before the Earth was formed.
