  • We present images of NGC 4696, the central galaxy in the Centaurus cluster, showing the large extent of cool filaments that are bright in Hα line emission. These filaments share the detailed structure of both the central dust lane and the inner regions of the arc-like plumes seen in soft X-ray emission. The X-ray gas is at its coolest and most absorbed in this same region. The smoothness of the features implies that the local environment is not strongly turbulent. We suggest that these… CONTINUE READING
