The unassuming little point of light in the centre of this image is something really quite special. Just 6000 light years away, it's the oldest star ever discovered. Going by the designation of SMSS J031300.36-670839.3, this star is older than the very galaxy which we live in, and formed when the Universe itself was still young.
