Central Milky Way in constellation Sagittarius Featured 31 Jul 2003 Print

Central Milky Way in constellation Sagittarius

Central Milky Way. This picture shows the central part of our galaxy, the Milky Way, in the constellation Sagittarius. The bright areas are star clouds containing millions of stars. These are intersected by dark dust lanes that block out the light from stars behind. The dust clouds and stars obscure the centre of the galaxy itself, which is located towards the centre of the picture. The Milky Way is a disc-shaped spiral galaxy containing at least 100 billion stars. Its centre is thought to contain a colossal black hole

HST image of NGC 4261 core & dust disc Featured 31 Jul 2003 Print

HST image of NGC 4261 core & dust disc

Evidence for a black hole at the core of a galaxy. False-colour visible light image of the core of galaxy NGC 4261 made by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The doughnut shape is thought to be a region of hot gas with a 300 light year wide inner disc of cooler gas and dust. At the centre is a very bright object, possibly the hot accretion disc of a black hole. There is also a feint V- shaped region coming from the core which correlates well with the jets from the galaxy seen at radio wavelengths. Such jets also support the idea of a black hole at the core. NGC 4261 is about 45 million light years from Earth
