Panning across on the Hercules galaxy cluster

This video sequence takes a close look at the Hercules galaxy cluster, one of the youngest and most unusual of such clusters in the nearby Universe. Many spiral galaxies and interacting pairs of galaxies are visible. This very detailed view of this cluster comes from the VST telescope, the latest telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.
