The cluster originated in M87 galaxy and has been named HVGC-1. It is now expected to endlessly drift through space, rocketing through the voids between other galaxies.

According to sources, M87 is home to several trillion stars and at least one super massive black hole. It weighs as much as six trillion Suns, making it one of the most massive galaxies in the nearby universe. It is located about 5.3 million light years away from Earth.

The discovery was made by Nelson Caldwell of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and his team while studying the space around the supergiant elliptical galaxy M87.

According to sources, the astronomers used the Hectospec instrument on the MMT Telescope in Arizona to examine the area in detail.
