Active Galaxy Circinus lies 13 million light-years away in the southern constellation Circinus. This galaxy is designated a type 2 Seyfert, a class of mostly spiral galaxies that have compact centers and are believed to contain massive black holes.

Black Hole Wind. A composite x-ray/optical image of the active NGC 1068 galaxy reveals an enormous plume of hot gas emanating from the supermassive black hole at the galaxy's center. Scientists think the shape and speed of the plume, which moves at about 1 million miles an hour, are caused by the funneling effect of a doughnut-shaped ring of cooler gas and dust that surrounds the black hole.

This is the Cave Nebula. Gives off vibes like a beautiful love scene at night. Then again, couldn't possibly all space pictures be called night scenes?
