So that over the net news last night and watched it five times in a row.
Its something absolutely amazing.
And they said that the estimated distance between the star and the black hole was about the same
like Earth's from Sun so you can imagine the power !!!

I could comment and say that black holes suck...

At distance they're not different from any other massive object, in that there is a gravitational pull, but no real "sucking action"...

I'm of the opinion that you can't suck in the vacuum of space (not in the literal sense anyway, I do actually know someone that would suck even in a vacuum).

I'm not sure though, that once an object is sufficiently close to lose its mass into the black hole, that there is some suction involved also.

This effect though, surely would be negligible compared to the gravitational pull...?

So black holes suck a little bit...?

The problem is that the light we see is 2.7 billion years old. Wich means this is not exactly live streaming Big Smile

Its nice to see it happen though. Seems like the black hole could suck those gases for a while before he runs out Smile

its a good job earth is too far away from the milky ways black hole wouldnt fancy being sucked into oblivion. lol
there is some truely amazing things in the universe. saturn is a 'WOW' through a telescope and there's some nice star clusters out there too.
if you ever have a clear night take some time out from poker and get a telescope or some bino's out. its pretty impressive Big Smile
