Wide field image of the region around two merging galaxies in SDSS J1531+3414 (ground based telescope)
This digitized sky survey image shows the region around the galaxy cluster SDSS J1531+3414. In this cluster two galaxies have been found to be merging into one and a "chain" of young stellar superclusters are seen winding around the galaxies' nuclei.
