The "X" is due to absorption by dust and marks the exact position of a black hole which may have a mass equivalent to one-million stars like the sun.

Yes! Yes!

.... more things for religious radicals to go off on.

This image of the core of the Whirlpool Galaxy, taken with the Wide Field Planetary camera  on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, shows a striking , dark "X" silhouetted across the galaxy's nucleus. The "X" is due to absorption by dust and marks the exact position of a black hole which may have a mass equivalent to one-million stars like the sun. The darkest bar may be an edge-on dust ring which is 100 light-years in diameter.

Nothing to do with religion. Though somewhat cool, yes.

Wow. The + symbol looks like a cross, addition is now holy :blink:
Out of the thousands of galaxies we've observed, it's very likely that one of them one or two of them will have an obscuring dust cloud that looks a tiny bit like a cross?

Doubt it. It can be anything else for all I care. The religious text thrown into the second link u provided really doesn't go far enough to convince me. Better examples of religious astronomical events would be Rick Larson's Star of Bethlehem Discovery. (Try Googling it) as it actually provides us with accurate religious prophecies and visions from the Old and New Testament and combined them perfectly with occurrence that took place 2000 years ago in the night sky.

I couldn't find what the Star of Bethlehem was supposed to be on Google. It sounds like a supernova to me.

In any case, yeah, it sounds cool, but I doubt this means anything. The cross is bound to show up somewhere in the universe, and I'm sure it's in many other places as well.

Yeah..yeah..just another "supposed" explanation, just cause people think religion is hoozy.

anyway, is this in the actual galaxy, or from something else?
