Like most galaxies, the Milky Way has a supermassive black hole in its center. For the most part, however, that black hole is dormant - meaning that it isn't emitting large amounts of radiation.

Nice article.

This appears to be a lot more distant than the starburst echo outflow lobes from the bulge core caused when material from the grand design spiral distortion caused by gravitation interaction with the Magellanic clouds. The transfer of gas & dust from the ring down the bar & the inevitable traffic jam in the core appears to have been responsible for both the starburst & the black hole seyfert flare.

It is probable that the starburst came first & the seyfert flare came next.

Will be interesting to get the timing down pat, as a lot of the starburst supergiants are younger than 2 million years; (Probably been a lot of traffic chaos since the starburst started).

Have a nice day: Ag
