MeerKATs Online

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day brings us an image built from data at the radio range (hence, not "visible" to the ordinary person). The MeerKAT array peers at the center of our galaxy to see what is lurking there. "Mouseover" the image in the link for details.

The MeerKAT is only the precursor for the Square Kilometer Array. Can't wait to find out what that learns when it comes online!
