In a recently released image, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has shown numerous distant galaxies that were previously hidden or faintly seen. One is the galaxy cluster Abell 370 with a massive collection of galaxies in various shapes guarding it and bound by common gravity in the gigantic cluster.  

Situated at 4 billion light-years away and having a place with Cetus group of stars, Abell 370 is an enormous galaxy cluster imaged in the Frontier Fields project.The picture of Abell 370 was taken with clear and close infrared light. It is heavily packed with a gigantic collection of large and bright galaxies in yellowish color containing billions of stars, NASA cited.

Gravitational lensing happens when world bunch Abell 370 twists the light radiating other spiral galaxies behind. This cosmic event of the cluster is favorable for Hubble in exploiting more galaxies. For Hubble, the Abell 370 appeared as a good target for its use as the means in tracing other remote galaxies using the latest lensing property for peering through the amplified images galaxies hiding behind.

 According to Astronomy, Abell 370 was one of the hundreds of galaxy clusters assembled by George Abell in 1958. His initial catalog contained 3,000 galaxy clusters from the Northern Hemisphere and it was refreshed in 1989 by including more clusters from the Southern Hemisphere.

An element called "the Dragon" showing up as a spread trail behind a winding world to the lower left center is another representation of gravitational lensing. Because of lensing impact of cluster galaxies, Hubble will find many distant galaxies.Astronomers are upbeat that Abell 370's gravitational lensing impacts will help in tracing remote galaxies that were a part of the early universe.

The coordinated effort between NASA's Great Observatories and added telescopes controlled the energy or power of gigantic galaxy clusters. The first phases of galaxy progress are delivered to the front line with galaxies that were 10 to 100 times fainter than any formerly observed.
