Doomed quasar is heading for a powerful explosion PKS 1302-102 is one of the few known quasars with a pair of black holes within its accretion disc. It is also a curious case for astronomers as it will produce a powerful explosion when these two black holes merge. The scientists trying to determine the scale of this merger estimate that it could result in an enormous release of energy.

Scientists at LIGO have found more gravitational waves—another signal from two black holes, 14 and 8 times the Sun’s mass, that collided billion years ago.

I think no night was ever quite so still, So smoothly lit with red along the west, So deeply hushed with quiet through and through. And strangely clear, and deeply dyed with light, The trees stood straight against a paling sky, With Venus burning lamp-like in the west. -  Sara Teasdale, excerpt of Guenevere

Best Evidence Yet for a High-Energy Jet Emanating from the Milky Way's Black Hole

New evidence has been uncovered for the presence of a jet of high-energy particles blasting out of the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole.

Nebula Galore

is the designation for a region of glowing hydrogen gas surrounding an association of young stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby, small companion galaxy to the Milky Way visible from the Southern Hemisphere.

CID-42: Exceptional Properties.  The galaxy at the center of this image contains an X-ray source, CID-42, with exceptional properties. After combining data from several telescopes — including NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory — researchers think that CID-42 contains a massive black hole being ejected from its host galaxy at several million miles per hour.

Supermassive black hole makes a break for it, escapes its galaxy Gravitational waves from a galaxy merger have popped a black hole loose.

NGC 4258 : Type II Seyfert Spiral Galaxy - This Chandra X-ray image reveals huge bubbles of heated gas (millions of degrees), above and below the plane of the galaxy. This ejection of gas by the black hole's jets has serious future implications. It is estimated the central regions of this galaxy is forming stars at a rate of about ten times less than the Milky Way, running out in about 300 million years
