Hercules galaxy cluster (Abell 2151), optical image. This is a cluster of just fewer than 100 galaxies that lies around 470 million light years from Earth in the constellation Hercules. Many of the galaxies are involved in gravitational interactions with their near neighbours, leading to their shapes being distorted.
