[Media Source*] (Hat Tip: Universe Today)
It appears that Scientist's have found some "hidden galaxies" that are quite bright (as ironic as that statement sounds). The galaxies are hidden behind a cloud of dust and are as bright as 10 trillion suns. A picture of it is "hidden" below.

More from Universe Today:
Where is all this dust coming from? The answer is not quite clear. Dust is churned out by stars, but it is not known how the dust wound up sprinkled all around the galaxies. Another mystery is the exceptional brightness of the galaxies. Astronomers speculate that a new breed of unusually dusty quasars, the most luminous objects in the universe, may be lurking inside. Quasars are like giant light bulbs at the centers of galaxies, powered by huge black holes.
A semi interesting story (unless your a space geek like me). Although it doesn't have to do with space colonization, I posted about it because I like the picture. Selah!
