    Zooming in on the active galaxy NGC 1433: This video sequence starts with a broad view of the southern sky and zooms in on the faint constellation of Horologium (The Clock). When we get closer we start to see a striking spiral galaxy known as NGC 1433. The central part of this galaxy hosts a supermassive black hole and observations of its surroundings using ALMA have revealed both a spiral structure to the molecular gas as well as a newly discovered outflow of material.Credit:ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)/F.

    Zooming in on the distant active galaxy PKS 1830-211: This video sequence starts with a broad view of the southern Milky Way and zooms in on a region close to the centre of the galaxy. When we get closer we start to see huge numbers of stars and, apparently nestled amongst them, but really vastly further away, the remote active galaxy PKS 1830-211 can just be seen. This unusual object is gravitationally lensed by a closer galaxy and appears split into two parts, as can be seen in the ALMA observations that are shown in red at the end of this sequence.Credit:ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)/I.

    Artist’s impression of ALMA observations of a gravitationally-lensed supermassive black hole: This artist’s representation shows the gravitationally-lensed black hole PKS1830-211 and the sudden flaring seen with ALMA when material enters the base of the jet, close to the black hole itself. Orange indicates the jet seen in radio waves; green, blue, and red are the (changing) images seen with ALMA and the white flashes represent gamma rays. Credit:ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)/I.
