It’s also fortunate that the instrument took this image in visible light. Both IC 1,559 and NGC 169 have active galactic nuclei (AGN), meaning their cores are “monumentally energetic,” per NASA. In other words, they have supermassive black holes expelling vast quantities of energy in the full range of the electromagnetic spectrum.
