Hubble Helps Find Smallest Known Galaxy Containing a Supermassive Black Hole — Astronomers using data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and ground observation have found an unlikely object in an improbable place — a monster black hole lurking inside one of the tiniest galaxies ever known.

The black hole is five times the mass of the one at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. It is inside one of the densest galaxies known to date — the M60-UCD1 dwarf galaxy that crams 140 million stars within a diameter of about 300 light-years, which is only 1/500th of our galaxy’s diameter.

If you lived inside this dwarf galaxy, the night sky would dazzle with at least 1 million stars visible to the naked eye. Our nighttime sky as seen from Earth’s surface shows 4,000 stars.

The finding implies there are many other compact galaxies in the universe that contain supermassive black holes. The observation also suggests dwarf galaxies may actually be the stripped remnants of larger galaxies that were torn apart during collisions with other galaxies rather than small islands of stars born in isolation.

Photo by @TimLaman.  An Anna’s Hummingbird shot recently in a San Diego backyard garden as it came in to feed on nectar at these flowers.  Freezing a moment of high action is one of the pleasures of still photography.  In this case, a 1/4000 of a second shutter speed helped capture a fleeting #moment.  #hummingbird, #sandiego, #nature, #birds, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, @natgeo, @TimLaman. by natgeo http://ift.tt/1smLKfR
