This month we have selected an image of the spiral galaxy NGC 4051, which is displayed using the Heat false colour setting available in LTImage. NGC 4051 contains an unusually bright central core, where enormous amounts of energy are being emitted from an accretion disk swirling around a super-massive black hole.
