This image is a wide-field view of the galaxy cluster MACS J2129-0741, located in the constellation Aquarius (the Water-Bearer). The massive galaxy cluster magnifies, brightens, and distorts the images of remote background galaxies, including the far-distant, dead disc galaxy MACS2129-1. Links: NASA Press Release Galaxy cluster MACS J2129-0741 and lensed galaxy MACS2129-1 MACS2129-1 compared with the Milky Way (artists impression)
