Scientists discovered a supermassive black hole hidden inside a dense layer of cosmic dust

A supermassive black hole obscured by a cloud of cosmic dust has been found at the center of an active galaxy in new images from the European Southern Observatory (ESO).

The galaxy, known as Messier 77 or NGC 1068, is a Spiral galaxy located about 47 million light-years from Earth, in the constellation Cetus. Made by ESO’s Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) in northern Chile, the observations shed light on galaxies with active galactic cores (AGNs) at their cores. These bright features are powered by all the gas and dust that falls at the center of the galaxy black holemakes this region far beyond the rest of the galaxy.
