Trou noir supermassif dans NGC 3783

This artist impression shows the surroundings of the supermassive black hole at the heart of the active galaxy NGC 3783 in the southern constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur).

Humility: Andromeda’s actual size, not accounting for the fact it is 2.5 BILLION LIGHT YEARS away, compared with the moon's 238,000 MILES away.  It contains a Trillion stars, while our galaxy contains at most a half a billion stars...absolutely amazing

Andromeda’s actual size…

Funny pictures about Andromeda's actual size. Oh, and cool pics about Andromeda's actual size. Also, Andromeda's actual size.


NGC 1300 by Steven Marx. A barred spiral galaxy about 61 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The galaxy is about light-years across; just slightly larger than our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a member of the Eridanus Cluster.

Spiral Galaxy Scientists have traced unusually regular radio signals being emitted from unknown object in this Galaxy.

If other planets were the same distance from Earth as the Moon. I love this series of pictures.-------Planètes à la place de la Lune

NGC 3314 is a pair of overlapping spiral galaxies between 117-140 million light years away in the constellation Hydra

NGC 3314 - a pair of overlapping spiral galaxie in the constellation Hydra. The foreground galaxy, NGC is about 117 mly away. The background galaxy, NGC is about 149 mly away. The two components of NGC 3314 are physically unrelated.

Black Holes

Black holes /black centre ones are dormant ( but still swallow light !

Tall Pano Milky Way  Well, there were not too many shooting stars the other night for the #perseids Meteor shower. I was up in the Santa Cruz mountains. I wish I had a large burst going right through the middle of this.

agujero negro

A black hole: physicists hope to mimic this peculiar cosmic phenomenon in the lab. (I don't think black holes are "peculiar" at all.

The accretion disk(circular rotating matter) solar system matter & nova remains/ binary star sucked into the hole.and jet (yet visible matter,subatomic breakdown, radiation) of a supermassive black hole. All spiral galaxies seem to have supermassive black holes at their center. That and dark matter (invisible) produce the galaxy the high speed of rotation. Jet is the still visible radiation from its breakdown of matter under it's gravity.

Interstellar ... I Love Sci Fi

Interstellar science Wormhole travel across the universe and supergiant black holes are just some of the wonders seen in the film 'Interstellar.

A Grazing Encounter Between two Spiral Galaxies | In the direction of the constellation Canis Major, two spiral galaxies pass by each other like majestic ships in the night. The near-collision has been caught in images taken by theNASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and its Wide Field Planetary Camera 2.

NGC 2207 and IC 2163 are a pair of colliding spiral galaxies about 80 million light-years away in the constellation Canis Major. Both galaxies were discovered by John Herschel in So far three supernovae have been observed in NGC 2207
