Outside of Kyoto, Japan there is a popular tourist district called Arashiyama. The area has been a frequent destination since the Heian Period (794-1185), when nobles would enjoy its natural setting. Arashiyama is particularly popular during the cherry blossom and fall color seasons. Within this area lies the famous bamboo forest of Sagano.

Unfathomable!!!!!!
11 times wider than the orbit of the planet Neptune around the sun!
 
Discovery of a gigantic #black #hole #NGC1277 : #mass equivalent to 17 billion times that of our #Sun

#Astronomers think they have discovered the largest black hole ever observed, a monster with a mass equivalent to 17 billion times that of our Sun,
lurking in the heart of a distant galaxy.

This black hole is so huge that it represents 14% of the total mass of his galaxy, compared to only 0.1% usually.

The monster "NGC 1277" is located 220 million light-years from Earth, in a #galaxy 10 times smaller than our #MilkyWay. The mouth of the black hole is enormous:
11 times wider than the orbit of the planet Neptune around the Sun.

"It really is a strange galaxy," says in a statement Karl #Gebhardt of the University of #Texas at #Austin .

Black holes are the most powerful forces in the universe. They create a #gravitational #field so intense that not even light can escape.

A stellar mass black hole forms when a very large star collapses on itself at the end of his life. It can then continue to grow engulfing other stars
or merging with other black holes, which sometimes creates these supermassive black holes that occupy the center of #galaxies .
But NGC 1277 questioned this theory because of its disproportionate size relative to its host galaxy.
