NASA has published a new image of the center of the Milky Way

NASA has released a new image of the Milky Way’s galactic center. It was collected from 370 images collected over 20 years of observation.

The data was collected by the Chandra Space Telescope and the MeerKAT Radio Telescope in South Africa. X-rays detected by Chandra are highlighted in orange, green, blue and purple in the image, while the data captured by MeerKAT is highlighted in purple and gray. In addition, threads are visible in the image, studying which will provide more information about galactic space weather phenomena.

The new image covers a wider plane of the galaxy than previously published photographs.
