Cosmic Weather -- Cold, Chaotic Accretion (IMAGE) National Radio Astronomy Observatory Caption The cosmic weather report, as illustrated in this artist concept, calls for condensing clouds of cold molecular gas around the Abell 2597 Brightest Cluster Galaxy. The clouds condense out of the hot, ionized gas that suffuses the space between the galaxies in this cluster. New ALMA data show that these clouds are raining in on the galaxy, plunging toward the supermassive black hole at its center. Credit Credit: NRAO/AUI/NSF; D.
