Researchers have found a galaxy cluster acting like a passenger on what astronomers are calling an "intergalactic highway." The cluster is known as the "Northern Clump" and is located about 690 million light years from Earth. These images show X-ray data from ESA's XMM-Newton and NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, along with optical and infrared data (orange, green, blue), and radio data from the Evolutionary Map of the Universe survey made by the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder telescope.
