Title: "The Halo of the Milky Way"
Description: This illustration shows the black hole, called the Sagittarius A*. It is located in the center of the Milky Way, next to the star S2. It is a highly dense object, a supermassive black hole, surrounded by a hot radio-emitting gas cloud with a diameter of about 1.8 pc. The distance to the radio source is (27.00 +- 0.10) thousand light years, the mass of the central object is (4.297 +- 0.042) million solar masses. Data from the VLBA radio telescope indicate that the black hole itself accounts for at least a quarter of the total mass of the Sagittarius A* object, with the rest of the mass being the matter surrounding the black hole, as well as its nearby stars and gas clouds.
