A Galactic Glutton

Deep inside our Galaxy, at its core, about 25000 light years from us, a gigantic glutton resides, destroying anything that comes too close to it. Many daring stars orbit it, some so closely that it takes only a few years to circle the black hole, Sagittarius A*. This exact part of the sky is however hidden in the visible spectrum by many dark nebulae spanning the Milky Way, called together the Great Rift.
