Is there a black hole in this galaxy?
This is a photo of Arakelian 120, an AGN galaxy which may contain a massive black hole at its centre, cf. ESO Press Release eso8709. The bright nucleus is overexposed and the underlying galaxy is only faintly visible. Most of the other objects in this field are stars in the Milky Way Galaxy.
