But that’s nothing compared to our sun. Just remember: | 26 Pictures Will Make You Re-Evaluate Your Entire Existence

This right here is a comet. We just landed a probe on one of those bad boys. Here's what one looks like compared with Los Angeles:

Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole's intense magnetic field Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy. The results appear in the 17 April 2015 issue of the journal Science.

The Black Eye Galaxy (also called Sleeping Beauty Galaxy; designated M64) absorbed a satellite galaxy that collided with it, perhaps more than one billion years ago. Active formation of new stars is occurring in the shear region where the oppositely rotating gases collide, are compressed, and contract. It is approximately 17 million light years from Earth. The inner region has a radius of only approximately 3,000 light-years, while the outer section extends another 40,000 light-years.

Researchers have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems.
