Where No Blob Has Gone Before

Fascinating, to coin a phrase:
Giant mystery blob found near dawn of time.

... Ouchi and Ellis said one possibility is that by chance, astronomers captured the moment a galaxy was forming in the early universe — something that never has been seen before. ... What Ouchi found was from 12.9 billion years ago. Only three other objects have been seen that are from deeper in time and space. ...
The lowest-rez space anomaly ever? Or just some ancient subspace seaweed "snagged" by our cameras?

Fifty-five thousand lightyears across is no foam-core model...
