NASA Captures the Eye of the Sky in Space


Under certain conditions, an image of a galaxy with a center will look impressively resembling a variety of shapes. Like the image shared by NASA this time, it looks like the appearance of the eye of the sky in outer space.

As quoted from WIO News, Wednesday (6/10/2021) the galaxy has a supermassive black hole at its center. The galactic core emits a large amount of electromagnetic radiation.

The galaxy is named Seyfert, or scientifically identified as NGC 5728. The Seyfert Galaxy looks like a normal galaxy, but has an active galactic core that has an unusually high luminosity.

Additional information states, this galaxy belongs to a class of galaxies known as the most luminous sources of electromagnetic radiation. The image shared by NASA was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

The luminosity of the Seyfert galaxy is 10^8 to 10^11 times the luminosity of the Sun. This stunning image of the galaxy was captured by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3).

This is not the first time a galaxy with an eye-like shape has been discovered. Previously there had been a similar form, even various. There are those that resemble ghost faces, beautiful butterflies, cat eyes, and much more.
