Coma galaxy cluster. True-colour optical image of galaxies in the Coma cluster, lying in the constellation Coma Berenices. The two brightest galaxies (at centre) are NGC 4889 (left) and NGC 4874 (right). Many other, fainter, galaxies are seen as fuzzy blobs around the two brighter ones. The Coma cluster contains around 100 galaxies, and lies around 300 million light years away. This image was produced by digitally combining photographs taken by the UK Schmidt Telescope in blue and red light.
