One of the largest X-ray surveys using the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton space observatory has mapped nearly 12,000 X-ray sources across three large, prime regions of the sky.

The X-ray sources represent active galactic nuclei and galaxy clusters, and the survey captures the growth of the supermassive black holes at the cores of these galaxies.

This X-ray survey complements previous X-ray surveys, allowing the researchers to map active galactic nuclei in a wide range of cosmic environments.

XMM-Newton image of the 4.6-square-degree W-CDF-S field reveals the wide, sensitive view of the X-ray sky provided by XMM-SERVS.

The detected sources, most of which are growing supermassive black holes, are color coded according to the energies of the X-rays detected (with red having the lowest energies and blue the highest).

The white outline indicates the area of the Chandra Deep Field-South, a well-known ultradeep pencil-beam X-ray survey.

The image highlights how XMM-SERVS has now provided sensitive panoramic X-ray imaging around this survey.

The XMM-Newton image covers an area about 20 times larger than the apparent size of the full moon, shown to scale at upper left.

XMM-Newton image of the 3.2-square-degree ELAIS-S1 field, which is about 15 times larger than the apparent size of the full moon (shown to scale at lower right).

XMM-SERVS provides a wide, sensitive X-ray view of this region.

XMM-Newton image of the 5.3-square-degree XMM-LSS field, which is about 25 times larger than the apparent size of the full moon (shown to scale at lower right).

XMM-LSS was the first XMM-SERVS field to have been observed by XMM-Newton.
