The finding shows that whatever is driving blazar
jets operates right near the central black hole, which can weigh in at millions or billions of times the mass of the sun.
What makes a blazar
so bright is that one of these particle jets happens to be aimed almost straight at us.
The organization receives about $200,000 worth of work from volunteer groups annually, a bulk of which is provided via the Day of Caring event, according to Jason Blazar
, stewardship coordinator and Friends member since 1999.
Title: Long-term monitoring of the optical polarization in the TeV blazar
The galaxy's gravity bends the light into different paths, so astronomers see the background blazar
as dual images.
Astronomers classify B0218+357 as a blazar
-- a type of active galaxy noted for its intense emissions and unpredictable behavior.

NASA FERMI EXPLORE: This animation tracks several gamma rays through space and time, from their emission in the jet of a distant blazar
to their arrival in Fermi's Large Area Telescope (LAT).

For example, the rapid development ofradio astronomy after the Second World War gave rise to the designations radio galaxy (1940s)--galaxies which produced unusually large amounts of radio radiation--quasar (early 1960s)--mysterious point-like sources of radio radiation in the sky--and blazar
(mid-1970s) quasars which showed dramatic variations in brightness.
