Caption: Fornax A galaxy. Combined optical (white) and radio (orange) image of the galaxy Fornax A (NGC 1316, centre). The smaller galaxy NGC 1317 is above it. These galaxies are members of the Fornax cluster, a gravitationally linked group of 18 galaxies which lies around 70 million light years from Earth in the constellation Fornax. Fornax A is a powerful source of radio waves (orange). These radio emissions are powered by a massive black hole at the galaxy's centre. Image produced using radio data from the Very Large Array (VLA) telescope.
