Constellation of Virgo and Coma Berenices
The Virgo cluster of galaxies is located about 60 million light-years away in the direction of the constellation Virgo and Coma Berenices. The centre of the cluster of galaxies lies in the northern tip of the Virgo constellation close to the border with the Coma Berenices constellation.
This ground-based image is centred on the Coma Berenices constellation, with small parts of the neighbouring constellations also visible: Canes Venatici (top), Leo (right), Virgo (bottom) and Boötes (left, just outside of this view).
The bright star at lower left is ε Virginis (Vindemiatrix).
The bright star at lower right is β Leonis (Denebola).
The bright star at top left is α Canum Venaticorum.
The Virgo cluster of galaxies lies in the middle of the lower part of this view, between ε Virginis and β Leonis.
