    SUMMARY: A team of astronomers have taken the highest resolution mid-infrared picture ever taken of the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The image is so detailed, you can actually see dust swirling around the giant black hole located at the centre of the galaxy. The camera, called the Mid-Infrared Large-Well Imager, or Mirlin, is attached to the enormous Keck observatory in Hawaii.

    Where's the image?

    Fraser, in the future could you include the image from the Full Story links (or from their original sites) in these discussions, so that if you end up not posting it on the main page as a major story, at least we have a photo to work with? :unsure:
