WOW! Galaxy M106 poses

This is a pretty mind-blowing image of galaxy M106, and you can download an even higher resolution image. This is pretty amazing stuff. Apparently some of this composite image, the red arms, result from a massive black hole spewing out energy & hot matter across, across, hmm, no idea the scale of things here, thousands of light years?  If you look at the back ground, you see all those other things, and they be other galaxies. Just wow!
