August – The Fornax galaxy cluster

The Fornax galaxy cluster is one of the closest of such groupings beyond our Local Group of galaxies. This new VLT Survey Telescope image shows the central part of the cluster in great detail. At the lowerright is the elegant barred-spiral galaxy NGC 1365 and to the left the big elliptical galaxy NGC 1399.
