This is a picture of a supermassive black hole located in Hercules A. You can see the two extremely large jets shooting out from the core of the black hole. This galaxy is located 2.1 billion light years away and also 1000 times the mass of our own milky way. The jets themselves are about 1 and half million light years long! It’s quite a beauty to look at even though we’ll never ever get there, it’s great to at least appreciate these images in the wild.
