Black Hole Photo Tomorrow 10 April, 2019

April 9, 2019

At 6 AM Pacific time, astronomers operating the Event Horizon Telescope network of radio telescopes plan to release their photos of two black holes. One hole sits at the center of our galaxy with a mass 4.1 million times that of our sun. The other is at the center of galaxy Messier 87 in the Virgo constellation Virgo, and is 7 billion times more massive than our sun and spews jets of particles.

I know you’re all awaiting this photographic event with baited breath, and just in case you’re not completely up-to-date on the peculiarities of black holes and photographing them, here’s a great explanation by astrophysicist Derek Mueller.  [Chuck Almdale]
