The Markarian's Chain in Virgo

The Markarian's Chain
Markarian's Chain is a stretch of galaxies that forms part of the Virgo Cluster. It is called a chain because, when viewed from Earth, the galaxies lie along a smoothly curved line. [Source: Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markarian's_Chain]
