Digitized Sky Survey image around Abell 2597
Observations by ALMA and data from the MUSE spectrograph on ESO’s VLT have revealed a colossal fountain of molecular gas powered by a black hole in the brightest galaxy of the Abell 2597 cluster — the first of its kind to be detected.
The image is a colour composite made from exposures from the Digitized Sky Survey 2 (DSS2), and shows the region surrounding the Abell 2597 cluster. The field of view is approximately 2.4 x 2.0 degrees.
