Our Galaxy's Central Black Hole Spit Out a GIANT FLASH of LIGHT
#1
This is really cool stuff.  Back in May, observers recorded a time-lapse of a sphere of bright light seemingly emanating from the black hole in the center of the Milky Way.
Makes ya' wonder. Scratchinghead

"The supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy emitted a bizarre flash of light, an astronomer studying the phenomenon said.

The flash likely occurred around May 13, and was uncharacteristic of the normal celestial behavior of the black hole, Sagittarius A, at the center of the galaxy, according to Science Alert.

“I was pretty surprised at first and then very excited,” Tuan Do, assistant researcher at the UCLA Division of Astronomy and Astrophysics, told Science Alert.

“The black hole was so bright I at first mistook it for the star S0-2, because I had never seen Sgr A* that bright. Over the next few frames, though, it was clear the source was variable and had to be the black hole. I knew almost right away there was probably something interesting going on with the black hole,” he continued."

Scientists may have witnessed birth of Black Hole (animation). Bunch of cool Keck Observatory videos.

It let off a flash, so I think something huge got sucked in, exciting particles outside the event horizon.


Nothing gets out except some hawking radiation, though...right?

So they say. But what if it could? daydream It certainly would be from another dimension.
