Space photos of the day 06/25

Image 1 of 10


This artist's impression shows the Cygnus X-1 binary star system, one of the brightest X-ray sources in the sky. Data suggest that there is a small, very dense object about nine times the mass of the sun in this star system. The object could be a black hole, but, strangely, it appears to have formed without a supernova.
