The image shows the core area of our nearest major galaxy, Andromeda. At the centre of the galaxy lies a supermassive black hole. This central black hole has always been a bit odd when compared to central black holes in similar galaxies. Based on its X-ray luminosity, it is much fainter in radio waves than expected.
The image was acquired remotely via Telescope Live.
