More on Black Holes

The earlier article on a black hole binary system was pretty amazing, yet the video accompanying the story was created to demonstrate the phenomena. I found an even more amazing real video of stars orbiting the supermassive black hole at the center or the Milky Way galaxy. You can see the 20-year time-lapse video here from the NaCo instrument on the European Space Telescope’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. This black hole, Sagittarius A*, is about 27 000 light-years away from Earth.
