M 87 Flare

Recommended Posts

Some of you may have already seen this image. But, I came across it in my stack of images and thought the newer members might be interested.

This is M 87 with a jet-flare coming off of the right side (1 o'clock position). This flare is approx. 5000 LY long and powered by a black hole at the speed of light. A google search of the Hubble image will show the longer flare. Sorry but, my scope was cheaper and smaller... :(

Hey, that's an impressive catch. :shock:

Just how much cheaper and smaller is your scope? :(
