Phoenix Cluster

Yeah, you read that right. The Phoenix cluster is cranking out an average of 700 stars per year. Compared to our own Milky Way at one or two a year, that's a lot of stars!

Besides the number of stars, the Phoenix cluster is cranking out massive amounts of X-Rays and is 5.7 Billion light years away (keep that in mind...).
