Almost every object you see in the photograph is a galaxy. Coma Cluster is a group of galaxies in the faint constellation Coma Berenices and it contains thousands of galaxies that houses billions of stars each, just as our Milky Way Galaxy does. Most galaxies in Coma and other clusters are ellipticals, while most galaxies outside of clusters are spirals.  Photo by Justin Ng in Singapore.  See more photos by Justin Ng.

Virgo Cluster Galaxies (Apr 22 2011) IMAGE CREDIT & COPYRIGHT: Rogelio Bernal Andreo (blog.deepskycolors.com/about.html). Well over a thousand galaxies are known members of the Virgo Cluster, the closest large cluster of galaxies to our own local group. In fact, the galaxy cluster is difficult to appreciate all at once because it covers such a large area on the sky.

El Gordo, or "the fat one",lies some ten billion light-years away from us. It is the largest known galaxy cluster in the distant Universe and contains several hundred galaxies. New Hubble Space Telescope observations show that it is actually some 43 percent heavier than previously thought, with a mass some three million billion times the mass of the Sun. - Image Credit: NASA, ESA, J. Jee (University of California, Riverside, USA) - Image enhancement: Jean-Baptiste Faure

》The galaxies of Abell 2666 lie far beyond the Milky Way, some 340 million light-years distant toward the high flying constellation Pegasus. Framed in this sharp telescopic image, the pretty cluster galaxies are gathered behind scattered, spiky, Milky Way stars. At cluster center is giant elliptical galaxy NGC 7768, the central dominant galaxy of the cluster.《

This Chandra image shows a larger scale view of the galaxy cluster MACSJ0717, where the white box shows the field-of-view of the Chandra/HST composite image. The green line shows the approximate position of the large-scale filament leading into the cluster 3/13/17
