Do you want to see how the universe has evolved during the last 13 billion years? This video shows the simulation results of the Millennium Simulation, starting at a very early point of time with almost uniformly distributed matter and ending today. As for all previous images and videos we see the distribution of dark matter. But since dark matter attracts normal matter which then forms galaxies you can use the simulation to visualise the distribution of galaxies. 500 kiloparsecs (kpc) are about 1.6 million light years.
