New Hubble photo shows galaxy’s bright supermassive black hole cloaked in dust

NASA’s venerable space telescope has captured a stunning new view of a galaxy with an active black hole obscured by tendrils of dark dust.

The spiral galaxy, known as NGC 7172, is located about 110 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Piscis Austrinus. The image combines two sets of images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and Wide Field Camera 3.
