Astronomers from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration have imaged a jet in the heart of the nearby radio galaxy Centaurus A and identified the location of the galaxy’s central supermassive black hole with respect to its resolved jet core.

Centaurus A is located some 13 million light-years in the constellation of Centaurus.

First discovered in 1826 by the Scottish astronomer James Dunlop, it is a massive elliptical radio galaxy — a galaxy which emits strong radio waves — and is the most prominent, as well as by far the nearest, radio galaxy in the sky.

Also known as NGC 5128, LEDA 46957 and ESO 270-9, Centaurus A is also the closest active galactic nucleus to us.
