This spectacular image shows enormous jets shooting from a supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy named Hercules A. The yellow parts are the optically visible stars in the galaxy, taken by Hubble. The pink jets are 1.5 million light year wide jets blowing from the black hole — that’s about 10x longer than our own galaxy is wide! And you thought Old Faithful was impressive?
