image for Star Gazing item typeBlack Holes: Imaging the Invisible at Seething Observatory

Star Gazing, from 31 Jan 2020, £1.50-£3

Details

Black Holes are just that, a black hole in space. So how do you go about taking a picture of one?
We know there is something there, and we know it is incredibly massive. These stars orbiting it are not small, they are giants.
But compared to the object they are orbit, they are little more than specks of dust. As massive as this object is, it is invisible.

Find out what scientists did to try to image this and other super massive black holes.
