Main image: M87 (NASA/Chandra) Inset: Perseid Meteor (Mike Oates, Manchester Astronomical Society, Aug 1989)
NASA’s X-ray image reveals M87’s jet as a series of spiral plasma knots. Also note, the node/anti-node spacing could well stem from core resonance.
Inset is a pulsed meteor trail, again looking like resonance.
