The Strangest Black Holes in the Universe | Space.com

As supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies suck in surrounding gas and dust, they can spew out huge amounts of energy. The brightest quasar we see in the visible range is which lies about 3 billion light-years away.

VY Canis Majoris has a diameter of almost 2 billion kilometers (compare that to the sun’s relatively measly 1.4 million!). It’s located about 5,000 light-years from Earth, and used to be the largest star known the science. Today, however, scientists believe that UY Scuti might hold that title, boasting a diameter of around 2.4 billion kilometers. Click the image to learn more!

mindblowingscience:  Turquoise-tinted plumes in the Large Magellanic CloudThe brightly glowing plumes seen in this image are reminiscent of an underwater scene, with turquoise-tinted currents and nebulous strands reaching out into the surroundings.However, this is no ocean. This image actually shows part of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small nearby galaxy that orbits our galaxy, the Milky Way, and appears as a blurred blob in our skies. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has peeked…

El Gordo, or "the fat one",lies some ten billion light-years away from us. It is the largest known galaxy cluster in the distant Universe and contains several hundred galaxies. New Hubble Space Telescope observations show that it is actually some 43 percent heavier than previously thought, with a mass some three million billion times the mass of the Sun. - Image Credit: NASA, ESA, J.
