Across multiple continents, including Antarctica, an array of radio telescopes observe the galactic center.

A view of the different telescopes contributing to the Event Horizon Telescope’s imaging capabilities from one of Earth’s hemispheres. The data taken from 2011 to 2017 should enable us to now construct an image of Sagittarius A*. (APEX, IRAM, G. Narayanan, J. McMahon, JCMT/JAC, S. Hostler, D.

The black hole at the center of our Milky Way, simulated here, is the largest one seen from Earth’s perspective. The Event Horizon Telescope should, this year, come out with their first image of what this central black hole’s event horizon looks like. The white circle represents the Schwarzschild radius of the black hole. (Ute Kraus, Physics education group Kraus, Universität Hildesheim; background: Axel Mellinger) black hole discovery how are black holes formed black hole nasa black hole facts
