    Galaxies usually exist in clusters, some of which in turn are grouped into larger clusters that measure hundreds of millions of light-years across. (A light-year is the distance traversed by light in one year, traveling at a velocity of , km per second [km/sec], or ,, miles per hour.). Zwicky and coworkers (Catalog of Galaxies and Clusters of Galaxies = CGCG, vols. , ) found many looser clusters. The Abell clusters have been tabulated with up-to-date information by Struble and Rood (ApJSu and ).

    The Coma cluster, about Mpc away and about 8 Mpc across, contains thousands of galaxies. At its center are two giant elliptical galaxies. Like most rich clusters, the Coma cluster is spherically symmetric, with a strong central concentration. The groups and clusters of galaxies can themselves be clustered, into superclusters of galaxies. The Milky Way galaxy is part of a group of galaxies called the Local Group.

    In contrast to local clusters, the z > systems mostly do not harbor central dominant galaxies coincident with the x-ray centroid position, but rather exhibit significant brightest cluster galaxy (BCG) offsets from the x-ray center with a median value of about 50 kpc in projection and a smaller median luminosity gap to the second-ranked. We present a search for nuclear X-ray emission in the brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) of a sample of groups and clusters of galaxies extracted from the Chandra archive. The exquisite angular resolution of Chandra allows us to obtain robust photometry at the position of the BCG, and to firmly identify unresolved X-ray emission when present, thanks to an accurate characterization of the Cited by: 4.

The systematic properties of clusters of galaxies - NASA/ADS Fifteen rich clusters of galaxies have been studied on photoelectrically calibrated photographic plates.

These plates were measured using new automatic photometry by: 9. Spiral rich clusters tend to be less dense than average and cD clusters more dense, but, in the mean, all clusters follow a constant density law independent of mass.

The cD clusters and others with a high ratio of elliptical to spiral galaxies have mass to light ratios of aboutwhile the mass to light ratio of spiral rich clusters is less than half of this by: 9.

The Systematic Properties of Clusters of Galaxies. Photometry of 15 Clusters - NASA/ADS Fifteen rich clusters of galaxies have been studied using a new automatic method for finding and photometering galaxies on photographic plates.

It was found that their properties are such that they may be divided into three groups. Clusters of galaxies are large assemblies of galaxies, hot gas and dark matter bound together by gravity. Galaxy clusters are now one of the most important cosmological probes to test the standard cosmological models.

Spiral rich clusters tend to be less dense than average and cD clusters more dense, but, in the mean, all clusters follow a constant density law independent of mass.

The topics covered included the spatial distribution and the clustering of galaxies; the properties of Superclusters, Clusters and Groups of galaxies; radio and X-ray observations; the problem of unseen matter; theories concerning hierarchical clustering, pancakes, cluster.

The range of speeds depends, in turn, on the force of gravity that holds the stars within the galaxies. With information about the speeds, it is possible to calculate the mass of an elliptical galaxy. Table 1 summarizes the range of masses (and other properties) of the various types of galaxies.

Table summarizes the range of masses (and other properties) of the various types of galaxies. Interestingly enough, the most and least massive galaxies are ellipticals.

Interestingly enough, the most and least massive galaxies are ellipticals. • Hubble proposed a scheme for classifying galaxies (the “tuning fork” diagram) in his book, The Realm of the Nebulae. • Subsequent refinements proposed by others - but not any fundamental change.

• Nowadays we seek to define galaxy families through their physical properties and fundamental correlations - which reflect. In this collision between two clusters of galaxies, the stars pass between each other unhindered, while the hot, diffuse gas experiences friction and is left behind between the clusters.

The gas dominates the visible mass budget of the clusters, being several times more massive than all the stars. Clusters of Galaxies • Clusters of galaxies are the largest gravitationally bound systems in the Universe.

• At optical wavelengths they appear as over-densities of galaxies with respect to the field average density: hundreds to thousands of galaxies moving in a common gravitational potential well (a smaller assembly is defined a galaxy group).

Galaxy clusters typically have the following properties: They contain to 1, galaxies, hot X-ray emitting gas and large amounts of dark matter. [4] Details are described in the "Composition" section.

It is not known whether the structure consists of one, two or three clusters or one, two or three proto-clusters, or some combination of clusters and proto-clusters. Dots are galaxies with photometric redshifts between –; the contours are another representation of these same galaxies.

The nearest galaxy cluster is the Virgo Cluster, at a distance of 16 Mpc. It is comprised of about classified large galaxies (and 10x more smaller ones), and is classified as an irregular cluster, meaning that rather than being a "spherical" cluster, it has a.

List of galaxies and galaxy clusters A galaxy is any of the systems of stars and interstellar matter that make up the universe. Many such assemblages are so enormous that they contain hundreds of billions of stars. Galaxy clusters are gravitationally bound groupings of galaxies, numbering from the hundreds to the tens of thousands.

Such components of galaxies come in two basic forms: stellar and gas structures that are usually self-contained because of their internal gravity, and galaxy-wide -contained structures include: globular clusters, open clusters, star forming regions, and molecular clouds. Galaxy-wide structures include spiral arms, bars, rings, and even tidal tails.

Clusters of Galaxies Most galaxies are not alone in the vast expanse of space, but are connected to one or more other galaxies by gravity. The same force that holds you onto the Earth can keep many individual galaxies bound together.

First Online 08 October. The diameters of globular star clusters range from 50 light-years to more than light-years. Open Clusters. Open clusters are found in the disk of the Galaxy. They have a range of ages, some as old as, or even older than, our Sun. The youngest open clusters are still associated with the interstellar matter from which they formed.

Boris V. Alexeev, in Nonlocal Astrophysics, Gravitational Lensing Observations of Galaxy Clusters. Gravitational lensing observations of galaxy clusters allow direct estimates of the gravitational mass based on its effect on light coming from background galaxies, since large collections of matter, dark or otherwise, gravitationally deflect light.

observational properties of clusters of galaxies, then I will review di erent meth-ods which are usually used to estimate their masses and discuss their reliability. In this paper, I will adopt the value of H 0 =50kms−1Mpc 2. Observational properties Optically Optically clusters of galaxies appear as large concentration of galaxies in a.

Galaxy clusters are huge: some may be more than ten million light years across and contain thousands of galaxies. In many cosmological models, these massive clusters form from smaller, more common clusters of galaxies.

If this is true then galaxy clusters from long ago should be smaller on average than younger clusters. Table \(\PageIndex{1}\) summarizes the range of masses (and other properties) of the various types of galaxies. Interestingly enough, the most and least massive galaxies are ellipticals.

On average, irregular galaxies have less mass than spirals.
