Zooming in on VISTA’s view of the Fornax Galaxy Cluster

This zoom into the Fornax Cluster of galaxies starts with a large slice of sky dominated by the bright constellation of Orion. We zoom in towards the fainter stars of the constellation of Fornax (the Chemical Furnace) and a rich grouping of galaxies emerges — the Fornax Galaxy Cluster. With the final VISTA view we have a family portrait in infrared light of the central part of the cluster that is full of bright galaxies.
