Today’s Astronomy Picture Of the Day is awesome.
See for August 4, 2021.
There is a picture of a giant purple plume emitting from a black hole. It is in the direction of Centaurus A. Also, technology exists to link up several satellite dishes worldwide to use iferometry to resolve small features. This is what I just read on a website. Take a look at the picture.
