    They spotted another older (or younger?) Milky Way:

    "Astronomers spy a Milky Way–like galaxy in very early universe

    Astronomers imagine the early universe as a wild and lawless place, with chaotic fledgling galaxies full of swirling gases and frantic star formation. So an image released today comes as a surprise: a young galaxy, spied when the universe was just 10% of its current age, that looks remarkably like our calm and well-ordered Milky Way.
