In April 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope project released the first direct image of a black hole in the galaxy M87. This series of images represent an extensive observing campaign by telescopes around the globe and in space of M87's black hole and the region around it. These telescopes, which included NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, cover the entire spectrum of light from radio waves to gamma rays. The images also range in scale from a fraction of a light year to hundreds of thousands of light years. These combined data will help scientists gain crucial insight into the black hole's properties.
