That's actually the distorted image of a more distant galaxy, and it's a common enough sight near foreground clusters. But the thing is, ...

Still, the small size of the cluster means a lot of its members are interacting, and if you look closely you see lots of them tugging at the others:

But sometimes it gets a little snack, and when it does it can let out a cosmic-sized belch. A very, very, very hot belch. Like it did in July 2012:

The truth about extraterrestrials: Will we ever discover intelligent life in the universe? It's a question that's hounded scientists and sci.

When you observe Cen A using a radio telescope it gets weirder: two huge jets of material are being shot out of the core.

[Note: this image is rotated 180° from the one above.] Again, we see lots of red gas clouds glowing, fired up by massive stars forming in them.

This can really mess with what we see… which I can prove! Check this out: a Hubble image of the galaxy RCSGA 032727-13260.
