Astronomers at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have compiled the largest astronomical image to date. The picture of the Milky Way contains 46 billion pixels. In order to view it, researchers headed by Prof Dr Rolf Chini from the Chair of Astrophysics have provided an online tool. The image contains data gathered in astronomical observations over a period of five years.

During several months in 2011, astronomers observed unusual high-energy flares from a new source in the constellation Draco which is considered a dormant black hole that suddenly awoke when it got some tasty food in the shape of a star that came too close.  

Here's a NASA animation that depicts the fate of a star that gets too close:
