View of the spiral galaxy Messier 61, located in the constellation Virgo (the Virgin) over 50 million light-years away. This spiral galaxy is aligned face-on towards Earth, thus presenting us with a view of its structure. It has both a massive nuclear star cluster and a supermassive black hole in its centre. This image was taken as part of ESO’s Cosmic Gems Programme, an outreach initiative to produce images of interesting, intriguing or visually attractive objects using ESO telescopes, for educational and outreach purposes.
