The odd galaxy NGC 660

Dual lanes of gas, dust, and stellar nurseries cross NGC 660, a galaxy in the constellation Pisces. Recent research suggests that a large amount of material fell toward the supermassive black hole at the galaxy’s core. Powerful magnetic fields directed much of that material back into space, producing an outburst of radio waves. [Gemini Observatory/AURA/Travis Rector (Univ. Alaska)]
