It can only be estimated. Generally the number is between 100 and 200 billion Galaxies in the "Observable Universe". We can only see galaxies that have had enough time for light to get to us. Galaxies collide and merge and the Universe itself is expanding. The actual counting is difficult. The best way to view them is out of the atmosphere with a fairly wide lens, but with incredible sensitivity.

Now, where was I... 143,274,956,231.. 143,274,956,232...
