Images of the Whirlpool Galaxy and NGC 5195 (image) Royal Astronomical Society Share Print E-Mail Caption Left: Image of the Whirlpool galaxy and NGC 5195. Credit: Jon Christensen. Right: False color image of NGC 5195 created by combining the VLA 20 cm radio image (red), the Chandra X-ray image (green), and the Hubble Space telescope H-alpha image (blue). The image shows the X-ray and H-alpha arcs, as well as the radio outflows from the supermassive black hole at the center of NGC 5195. Right inset: e-MERLIN maps of the nuclear region of NGC 5195 at 1.4 GHz (left) and 5 GHz (right). The images display a partially resolved source with possible parsec-scale outflows.
