Just in time for Valentine's Day comes a new image of a ring -- not of jewels -- but of black holes. This composite image of Arp 147, a pair of interacting galaxies located about 430 million light years from Earth, shows X-rays from the NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory (pink) and optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope (red, green, blue) produced by the Space Telescope Science Institute, or STScI.

The Dandelion Cluster is a group of stars located 5000 light years away from us, backdropped by the center of the galaxy.  This cluster collapsed from a large gas cloud about 200 million years ago and weighs about 300 solar masses.  Remnants of the cloud are visible, blocking light from the stars behind them.  There are so many stars….
