Guest Video: Our Neighborhood Black Hole


Relax — it’s about a thousand light-years away, small, and so quiet that it is truly invisible, unlike some Milky Way black holes.

Per this news report, it’s apparently just sitting there, dancing with two stars.



And people in the Southern Hemisphere here on Earth can see those stars, starting in June, in the appropriately named Telescopium constellation!
