Hubble has recently captured a glorious image of a galaxy cluster, named Hickson Compact Group 40 (HCG 40), engaging in a leisurely dance.
This eclectic group includes three spiral-shaped galaxies, a lenticular (lens-like) galaxy, and an elliptical galaxy. These five galaxies are packed particularly close together and would be able to fit in a region less than twice the length of the Milky Way’s stellar disk.
