The spiral galaxy NGC 1097 takes on a beautiful swirl in this infrared view, produced by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and published on July 23. The “eye” at the center of the galaxy is actually a monstrous black hole surrounded by a ring of stars. The galaxy is 50 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Fornax.
