Todays image and the topic of my ramblings is the astronomical object M104, also known as "The Sombrero Galaxy". I think it is sooo beautiful and I hope you agree.
It's an astonishing picture, but when you learn about this galaxy, it is also a very interesting one. In the middle there is a huge black hole, one of the largest who has ever been found. M104 is also moving at an incredibly speed, four million km/h. This lead to the discovery that the entire universe expands, and after that, the explanation for it was found: The Big Bang-theory.
