Furthermore, estimations of astronomers have revealed that the super cluster may stretch to about 650 millions of light years based on its distance. Therefore, the discovery of Saraswati Super Cluster will let astronomers to understand about both evolution and formation of the galaxy in detail, its effect on galaxies environment and other super clusters.
