Caption

Comet galaxy. Hubble Space Telescope image of the comet galaxy (blue at top left) in the Abell 2667 galaxy cluster. The galaxy is being ripped apart by the gravitational pull of the galaxy cluster and is losing its gas and stars. This observation may explain the number of gas-poor galaxies in the universe. Abell 2667 is situated 3.2 billion light years from Earth. Image taken by the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in October 2001.
