Abell 2067 is a galaxy cluster in the constellation of Corona Borealis. On a larger scale, Abell 2067, along with Abell 2061, Abell 2065, Abell 2079, Abell 2089, and Abell 2092, make up the Corona Borealis Supercluster.[2] Abell 2061 lies 1.8 megaparsecs south of it and the two are likely interacting.[3]
