Highlights of the VST image of the Hercules galaxy cluster

These highlights, taken from a new image of the young Hercules galaxy cluster from the VLT Survey Telescope (VST) and the OmegaCAM camera, show a wide variety of interacting galaxies. The numerous interactions, and the large number of gas-rich, star-forming spiral galaxies in the cluster, make the members of the Hercules cluster look like the young galaxies of the more distant Universe.
