CENTAURUS A, by FERNANDO OLIVEIRA DE MENEZES
Not only the image of Centaurus A, but of all the image that it encompasses, I challenge you to open the image in high resolution using the link: https://www.astrobin.com/full/348854/0/. You can enhance the image in max resolution and try to locate galaxies in the photo. One tip, there are almost 30 galaxies in the image.
Forged in a collision of two normal galaxies, the fantastic blend of Centaurus A blue star clusters, pink star-forming regions and towering dark dust bands are seen here in remarkable detail. Near the center of the galaxy, remains of cosmic debris is constantly consumed by a central black hole with a billion times the mass of the Sun. As in other active galaxies, this process generates radio energy, X-rays and gamma rays radiated by Centaurus THE.
