Sagittarius A* Print

Sagittarius A* is the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy, the Milky Way. It’s the nearest supermassive black hole to Earth, and is similar to those found at the centre of most spiral and elliptical galaxies. Its radio signal was first detected in 1931. The asterisk in the name comes from a 1982 paper by astronomer Robert Brown, since the radio source was “exciting”, and an asterisk is commonly used to denote atoms in excited states.
