NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured a stunning image showing two “extremely bright” galaxies interacting.
The two star systems are identified as AM 1214-255. They contain active galactic nuclei (AGN), an extraordinarily bright central region of a galaxy. According reported NASA, its glow is caused by there matter spinning towards a supermassive black hole in the heart of the galaxy.
This occurs due to extreme friction in matter revolving around the central supermassive black holes, which causes light to be released across the electromagnetic spectrum, causing AGN to eclipse all other stars in the world. host galaxies.
Hubble: a window on the universe
The Hubble Space Telescope was able to observe the galaxy closest to the center as part of a survey that studies active galactic nuclei, with the aim of compile data on AGN nearby, which will be a useful resource for astronomers studying AGN physics, THE supermassive black holes and galaxy structures who shelter themamong others.

Hubble has been operating in space for over 20 years since its launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida in 1990. He captured stunning images and videos documenting black holes, colliding galaxies, and more.
