NGC 4696

NGC 4696 - Centaurus Cluster, Galaxy, NGC 4696, Hubble

Wallpaper Description:
This picture, taken by Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3, shows NGC 4696, the largest galaxy in the Centaurus Cluster. The new images taken with Hubble show the dusty filaments surrounding the center of this huge galaxy in greater detail than ever before. These filaments loop and curl inwards in an intriguing spiral shape, swirling around the supermassive black hole at such a distance that they are dragged into and eventually consumed by the black hole itself.
