Today’s Image of the Day from NASA features a supermassive black hole in the center of a galaxy.
This computer-simulated image depicts the black hole’s powerful gravity as it distorts the space around it.
The near-record breaking supermassive black hole was discovered in a sparsely populated area of the universe.
The photo is based on observations made by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the Gemini Telescope in Hawaii.
