Caption: Cluster of galaxies. Hubble Space Telescope image showing member of a cluster of galaxies associated with the radio galaxy 3C324. Only some of the galaxies within this frame belong to the cluster, which lies about nine billion light years away. Other objects are galaxies between five and twelve billion light years away. The panels at right show various features of the cluster. At top is a tangled group of galaxies which are distorted by extreme local gravitation. At centre are elliptical galaxies, showing that their form was established very early in the evolution of the Universe. At bottom is the galaxy 3C324.
