Cosmic orcs? Scientists snap best image yet of eerie ‘odd radio circles’ in space

Astronomers imaged a weird circle in space in high-definition for the first time as they try to figure out how these mysterious structures form. 

Known as “odd radio circles” (ORCs), the enigmatic shapes were first spotted in 2019 in images from the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope. Consisting of 36 colossal dishes located in Western Australia, ASKAP images the entire night sky in radio waves, began seeing circles in various spots.
