Fornax Galaxy Cluster
The Fornax Galaxy Cluster is one of the closest of such clusters beyond our "local Group" of galaxies. At the lower-right is the beautiful barred-spiral galaxy NGC 1365 and to the left the big elliptical NGC 1399, surrounded by a swarm of ultra-distant globular clusters. This VISTA image was made from images taken using filters in the near-infrared part of the spectrum and has captured many of the cluster members in one image. This image would be great displayed on a ceiling!
