The two formations lie at a distance of approximately 350 million light years from Earth.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope managed to capture two huge galaxies that are part of the huge Perseus galaxy cluster.
The two formations meet at one approximate distance of 350 million light years from Earth. The one on the left side of the image is a lenticular galaxy and the one on the lower right is a spiral galaxy.
The details of the captured image are due to the powerful resolution and high sensitivity of the Wide Angle Camera 3 used, both to visible and infrared light.
Given the impressive credentials of Perseus, an important figure in Greek mythology, famous for killing Medusa, it seems logical that the galaxy cluster is one of the largest objects in the known universe.
