X-ray & Optical Images of J0045+41
Scientists have discovered that an object previously thought to be part of the nearby Andromeda galaxy is actually a thousand times farther away. In addition, this source, known as J0045+41 for short, may contain two supermassive black holes in very close orbit around one another. These images show Chandra X-ray data as well as optical data from Hubble.

Large Field Optical Images
This large field optical image shows the full Hubble field used in the Chandra composite (left). Additionally, the second wider field optical image (right) shows the relation of the Hubble image of M31 (a field called the "PHAT" field, outlined) to the larger field of view of the galaxy.
