Things We Cannot See with Naked Eyes


A Supermassive Black Hole in Action

The yellow-hued object at the center of the frame is an elliptical galaxy known as Hercules A, seen by the Earth-orbiting NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. In normal light, an observer would only see this object floating in the inky blackness of space.

However, view Hercules A with a radio telescope, and the entire region is completely transformed. Stunning red–pink jets of material can be seen billowing outwards from the galaxy – jets that are completely invisible in visible light. They are shown here as seen by the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array radio observatory in New Mexico. These radio observations were combined with the Hubble visible-light data obtained with the Wide Field Camera 3 to create this striking composite.

Could there be many things around us, which we cannot detect yet, even with modern technology? Such as how miraculous things happen?

  1. I was not prepared to get this much amount of information on this site. I actually new less about Hercules. I am in hope the hole does not expand and cause climate issues in the near future.
