galaxy NGC 1365
An optical photo of the galaxy NGC 1365. This galaxy has a massive black hole at its center, and SAO astronomers have used the Chandra X-ray Observatory to measure the size of the hot, X-ray emitting source around this black hole, which is only about twice the size of our solar system.
