This colorized image is the millionth captured by the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory’s Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope. The bright dot at the center of the frame is the active galaxy 2MASX J16110570+0234002 located in the direction of the constellation Serpens Caput. Scientists think the galaxy’s behavior is unusual and are working to understand what might be the cause.
