Galaxy trio in Virgo



This nice trio of edge-on spiral galaxies (NGC 4222, NGC4216 and NGC4206) is located near the center of the Virgo Galaxy cluster, some 50 millon light years from Earth.  The central NGC 4216 is one of the largest and brightest spiral galaxies of the Virgo Cluster (brighter than the Andromeda Galaxy). Many smaller galaxies in the background.
