English: Centaurus A, also known as NGC 5128, is well known for its dramatic dusty lanes of dark material. Hubble’s new observations, using its most advanced instrument, the Wide Field Camera 3, are the most detailed ever made of this galaxy. They have been combined here in a multi-wavelength image which reveals never-before-seen detail in the dusty portion of the galaxy. As well as features in the visible spectrum, this composite shows ultraviolet light, which comes from young stars, and near-infrared light, which lets us glimpse some of the detail otherwise obscured by the dust.

This image is a JPEG version of the original TIFF image at File:Centaurus A, also known as NGC 5128 (captured by the Hubble Space Telescope).tif.

This JPEG version should be used when displaying the file from Commons, as the MediaWiki software is unable to create a thumbnail or preview of the original TIFF file, because it is larger than 12.5 megapixels. However, any edits to the image should be based on the original TIFF version in order to prevent generation loss, and both versions should be updated. Do not make edits based on this version.
