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.
