At http://phys.org/print315559603.html … space telescopes have shown up a swirl of stars with a central emission with two jets – seeming to be coming out of what is regarded as a black hole. The star clusters are normally not observed due to clouds of dust but infrared radiation is able to penetrate that dust. The black hole is represented by a dot on the image – it cannot actually be seen.
