Image: Hubble captures a galactic menagerie

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captured this massive galaxy cluster, called Abell 1351, 

 Abell 1351 lies in the constellation Ursa Major in the northern hemisphere.

This image is filled with streaks of light which are actually the images of distant galaxies.

an astrophysical phenomenon that occurs when a massive celestial body such as a galaxy cluster distorts spacetime strongly

This observation is part of an astronomical album that holds snapshots of some of the most massive galaxy clusters.

Snapshot Programs are lists of separate, relatively short exposures that are slotted into gaps between longer Hubble observations.

Having a large pool of Snapshot candidates to dip into allows Hubble to use every second of observing time possible,
