Yet another unimaginable image - Messier 106

There is a truly unimaginable close-up image of the majestic galaxy Messier 106 in NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day APOD.

BTW isn't our choice of words sometimes amusing considering, for example, how brilliantly luminous the black hole actually is...

"It is also a Seyfert II galaxy, which means that due to x-rays and unusual emission lines detected, it is suspected that part of the galaxy is falling into a supermassive black hole in the center" (wikipedia)
