Messier-Catalog: M 65 / M 66, New general catalog of nebulae and clusters of stars: NGC 3628
Constellation: Leo - The Lion

Even more distant than the Great Andromeda Galaxy, a couple of millions of lightyears towards the dark fields of spring's constellations, we find a group of galaxies nicely arranged. It reflects very well the tendency of galaxies to group to clusters and even huge "walls", "super clusters", "bubbles", etc...

Some of these structures fit into scales so large that they fill a considerable part of our whole theoretically observable universe.

Investigation of their structure, their distribution and scale may unveil crucial aspects of the very first moments of our universe.
