This ground-based view shows a 0.09 x 0.07 degree field around the Lynx cluster of galaxies (the yellow galaxies above and to the left of the centre). The Lynx Arc is visible as a red object.
This image was composed from six ground-based images (BRIzJK) from the blue to the infrared taken with the Mayall 4-m Telescope at NOAO's Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona, USA.
The frame shows the outline of the Hubble Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 image.
