Description

Abell 2151 - Hercules Cluster Galaxies

In Abell 2151 we see many interacting galaxy pairs and small groupings of galaxies distant about 500 million light-years away. This cluster is loaded with gas and dust rich, star-forming spiral galaxies but has relatively few elliptical galaxies, which lack gas and dust and the associated newborn stars.
