First photo taken of a black hole in the Milky Way

Astronomers presented the first obscure image of a massive black hole in the middle of the Milky Way. Scientists believe that almost every galaxy, including the Milky Way, has a gigantic black hole in the middle from which neither light nor matter can escape. Researchers hope the recordings will help them learn more about how black holes work, the M1 said.

We managed to take a picture of the black hole in the Milky Way

Astronomer László Kiss said that although the shot may seem blurry at first glance, it is actually very sharp. The ring of light in the photos is like a donut. There is a swirling cloud of gas around the core of the Milky Way, which means that the particles in it emit light on it.

“What we see in the pictures is a ring of light” Explained László Kiss. He added that as we approach, there is a point where only the photons can travel inward. “There is a distance before this where the photons that gravity orbits around the black hole create a sphere, a sphere of light, or a photon sphere. ” He added. In the image, the photons are on a border that can tear in our direction, and we can see exactly the photons that are heading towards us.
