Astronomers have found a pair of extraordinary objects that dramatically burst in X-rays. This discovery, obtained with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA's XMM-Newton observatory, may represent a new class of explosive events. These images shows the location of one of these objects in the NGC 5128 galaxy.
