About this image

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 center). The Lynx arc is visible as a red object.

This image was composed from six ground-based images (BRIzJK) ranging from the blue to the infrared taken with the Mayall 4-meter Telescope at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory's Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona.

The frame shows the outline of the Hubble Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 image.
