What is a blazar?

  • A blazaris a feeding super-massive black-hole (SMBH) in the heart of a distant galaxy that produces a high-energy jet viewed face-on from Earth.
  • Blazars are one of the most luminous and energetic objects in the known universe with a jet composed of ionized matter travelling at nearly the speed of light directed very nearly towards an observer.
