Yes, there are stars between galaxies. When there are collisions or interactions between galaxies, stars can be ripped out of the galaxies. These stars will then wander into space between galaxies. Such stars have been observed with the Hubble Space Telescope. Astronomers now need to determine how many of these stars may exist, in order to get a better estimate of how much matter there is in the Universe. This is the press release that presents the discovery of such stars, and here is Astronomy Picture of the Day's take on the subject. Amelie is working on ways to detect the signals of galaxies from radio maps.
The Hubble Space Telescope easily resolves millions of individual stars in an outer region of the Andromeda Galaxy, also known as M I always figured I'd have to wait until the next supernova to see an individual star among the trillion that comprise the Andromeda Galaxy. At the galaxy's distance of 2. Whenever I show Andromeda to the public, I make sure to remind each viewer that the haze they see is actually the light of billions of individual stars too far and faint to resolve into individual pinpoints. Those with inch and larger telescopes can survey the galaxy's brighter globular star clusters and stellar associations with the aid of detailed maps. But individual stars?

StarChild Question of the Month for November 1999
Galaxies are the largest formations or groups of individual stars that we know. We see the nearest stars to us as individual stars but as we look at those further away they tend to merge into the fuzzy glow of the Milky Way. This effect is rather like standing in a pine wood, the trees nearest to us are individuals but in the distance they merge into a solid mass of trees. The Milky Way our galaxy. Looking out into space beyond our own galaxy we can see other galaxies of many different shapes and sizes. As amazing as it seems there are clusters of galaxies and even super clusters of clusters of galaxies.
