Video: Gravitational Lens Animation: Changing View - Light Bent by Foreground Cluster
Running Time: 15 seconds
The Lynx arc only became visible thanks to the gravitational magnification
provided by the nearby cluster of galaxies. The huge mass hidden in the
galaxy cluster magnifies and bends the light from the Lynx arc behind it.
