Black Hole’s Bubble

We are looking at history

This is a gas bubble shooting from a black hole. It may not seem a very big bubble, but it is about 1,000 light years from end to end. And one light year is the distance that a beam of light travels in one year, ie very very far.

So what we can see happened a long time ago, it’s like looking at history.
