      Description

      Abell 2151 is a cluster of galaxies located in the constellation Hercules, about 500 million light years separate from us and contains about 200 galaxies of different types, including interacting galaxies that you can see in this image. The Abell 2151 cluster is enormous in size, it is just one part of a much larger supercluster, the Hercules supercluster, which in turn is part of a larger structure called the "Great Wall Supercluster".
