galaxy cluster MS0735.6+7421
A false color image of the galaxy cluster MS0735.6+7421 showing the effects of the supermassive black hole located at the bright knot at the center of the image. The image combines the X-ray (blue), optical (white), and radio (red) wavelengths. The scale marker corresponds to a distance roughly seven times larger than the diameter of our Milky Way galaxy.
