By combining X-ray, optical, and radio data, astronomers were able to get a full picture of a giant black hole in the center of the galaxy 4C+29.30. The X-ray data from Chandra, shown in blue, near the center of the image marks a pool of million-degree gas around the black hole. Optical light obtained with Hubble is shown in gold, and radio waves from the NSF's Very Large Array are in pink.
