What are clusters of galaxies




Galaxies themselves are not distributed randomly or evenly through the cosmos. They collect in groups and clusters. For example, our Milky Way belongs to the Local Groups of galaxies which comprises about 30star systems. Other galaxies are located in clusters which have several thousand members. One example is a cluster within the constellation Virgo, which is made up of more than 2000 galaxies.
