The image above shows NGC 1275, Perseus cluster of galaxies that lies about 230 million light years away toward the constellation of Perseus, where the disk of the dusty spiral galaxy near the image center is cutting through a large elliptical galaxy, visible predominantly on the lower left. Each galaxy spans about 50,000 light years across.
