Literally and metaphorically speaking, the day before UP 4014 was to traverse Echo/Weber Canyons was a rainy, lightly foamish day. While a storm system rolled east over the Wasatch Range, railfans were out surveying the landscape for their spot to shoot 4014. Here, an eastbound manifest lead by UP 8487 leaves Weber Canyon behind as it rolls through Mountain Green, UT.

This is a different view of the incredibly bright galaxy NGC5128, known as Centaurus A, or commonly named as the Hamburger Galaxy. In this view of Centaurus A, I have tried to allow us to peer into this bright glow to reveal the hidden dust surrounding this galaxy. Part of the disclosure, are a number of brighter shells [however faint] and plumes of ejected material, noticeably seen diagonally to the left lower centre, and out to the right upper centre. These being the effects of a super massive black hole that is also the source of the visible relativistic jet emerging out to the lower left.

Through image processing techniques, we can try to show details of an object not always seen in the normal light or glow of the object. Hope you like this different rendition, and thanks for looking!

Just for fun...
As a result of my wife’s envisaging of this object appearing as a Dragons Eye [GoT spin off], I thought to join a pair of these NGC5128’s to make the Dragons Eye complete, and how crazy is the result!
