‘Eye shaped’ galaxy staring from space
London: Scientists have captured the image of a nearby galaxy bearing resemblance to an eye, which contains an actively growing black hole.
The three NASA telescopes were able to create the image of the galaxy NGC 4151 showing gas interacting with the growing black hole at its centre, the Telegraph reported.
The white spot that looks like an eye’s pupil is the black hole and the red circumference is hydrogen.
The blue is created by X-rays, which scientists are studying to comprehend how such black holes interact with the gas around them.
The galaxy offers one of the best opportunities of studying the interaction between an active supermassive black hole and the surrounding gas of its host galaxy.
