M86

This image taken on April 4th, 2021 from my Creedmoor site shows a field of galaxies in the western portion of the Virgo cluster of galaxies. The Virgo galaxy cluster is a group of approximately 2,000 galaxies all gravitationally associated with each other. Our Milky Way galaxy's Local Group is part of this Virgo cluster. M86 (upper center) is a lenticular galaxy (a galaxy between an elliptical and spiral galaxy) and is one of the dominant galaxies in the group.
