Since we're all excited about the image of Sagittarius A*, here's a different view of the central regions of our galaxy.

In January the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa released a stunning radio dataset. In the image below I colorised it using what we call spectral index, which tells us what causes this radio emission, like electrons accelerated by magnetic fields.

Sgr A* would be an tiny spec at the center of this image.
