Hmm an ancient galaxy cluster in formation perhaps.

The Perseus cluster has been found to host a large number of stripped lenticular galaxies circling the cD NGC 1275. These would have hosted accreting black holes & quasars during their early days of accretion and gravitational interaction onto (into) a rich galactic cluster prior to the stripping collisions which left a lenticular core surrounding the central black hole behind & dropped the tidal tail of stripped stars from the interpenetrating collision into the cD in the core of the cluster.

The bright 3rd quasar may be the cD of the developing cluster.

Have a nice day: Ag
