Centaurus A

Centaurus A: An active galaxy at a distance of 10 million light years from Earth.

This image of Centaurus A shows a spectacular new view of a supermassive black hole's power. Jets and lobes powered by the central black hole in this nearby galaxy are shown by submillimeter data (colored orange) from the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope in Chile and X-ray data (colored blue) from the Chandra X-ray Observatory. Visible light data from the Wide Field Imager on the Max-Planck/ESO 2.2 m telescope, also located in Chile, shows the dust lane in the galaxy and background stars. The X-ray jet in the upper left extends for about 13,000 light years away from the black hole. The APEX data shows that material in the jet is travelling at about half the speed of light.

Surely the stars are images of love.

No star is ever lost we once have seen, We always may be what we might have been.

Galactic Center
The skies are painted with unnumber'd sparks.

Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars and see yourself running with them.

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
