Look into the eye of Sauron
Astronomers have recently discovered this image of the Eye of Sauron, looking back at us from across the void. What we are actually looking at is a supermassive black hole sitting at the center of
galaxy NGC 4151 located approximately 43 millions light years away. It’s one of the closest galaxies where astronomers can clearly
observe an actively growing black hole, probably feeding on Hobbits.
