(NASA/CNN) - This animation from NASA shows a record breaking galaxy cluster.

Astronomers recently found it in the Phoenix cluster that is about 5.7 billion light years from Earth.

In the center is a galaxy that is producing stars at a record pace, 20 times the rate typically seen.

Scientists say the rapid growth will likely be short-lived.
