Milky Way’s Center Exploded Nearly 3.5 Million Years Ago

milky way's center exploded nearly 3.5 million years ago

The gigantic energy flare busted out of the center of the Milky Way Galaxy nearly 3.5 million years ago. The scientists studying the Milky Way galaxy announced that the galaxy center blasted with a massive explosion and released the gigantic energy flare, which early humans and other species have seen. The blast was too big, that the trebles and the effects of it were observed nearly 200,000 light-years away, claims the scientists. The flare is named as Seyfert Flare. It started small in the center of the Milky Way galaxy.

After it started near the center of the galaxy, which is dominated by the supermassive Blackhole, the energy flare flashed throughout the galaxy and later exploded. The explosion was so big that the effects were observed 200,000 light-years away from the center of the galaxy. Magellanic Streams felt the slightest of the effects of the explosion as they are nearly 200,000 light-years away from the center of the galaxy. The scientists assume the explosion is somewhat related to the supermassive Blackhole in the galaxy center, which is named as Sagittarius A.

Sagittarius A is so big that it holds the mass of nearly 4.3 million suns like objects. The researchers published a paper in the journal that explained entire research. The scientists are using the Hubble telescope to detect and analyze the remainder of the flash and understand the effect. Also, the telescope will help to locate the source and find the reason behind the blast. According to Joss Bland-Hawthorn, study author and professor at the University of Sydney and Australia’s ARC Centre for All-Sky Astrophysics, the stream of energy was like the light coming from the lighthouse. It was not the shockwave, but the stream of light. The explosion lasted for nearly 300,000 years and was observed by Early humans in Africa.
