What is the furthest star that we know of?

    The combination of the power of the Hubble and Keck telescopes located a galaxy 13 billion light years away.  One of the interesting aspects of this finding is that we, from earth, can only see this galaxy 750 million years after the Big Bang. 

    An answer closer to your question: the farthest star “that we know of” would be much father than a star we have seen…

    Scientists know that the Milky Way is approximately 120,000 light years in diameter, and since earth is about 25,000 light years away from the middle of the galaxy, the furthest known star within the proximity of the Milky Way is approximately 95,000 light years away.
