We report the detection of Sagitarius A*, the radio source associated with the Milky Way's central ~3 million solar mass black hole, in a high resolution, high sensitivity, 330 MHz Very Large Array image. This is the lowest radio frequency detection to date of this source. Implications for the spectrum, emission processes, and location of Sagittarius A* with the respect to nearby objects are discussed.
