It was kinda fun to realize that there’s no seeing the black hole. Kinda messes with the brain a little bit!

The black hole has about the same mass as a star, so it’s known as a microquasar.  The black hole and star are also moving around 4x faster through the galaxy than normal. Bust a move!

For a black hole, 5000 light years is ridiculously close.  Yay! Our galaxy is interesting! Maybe we’ll get tourists! That’d be sweet.  More on black holes in our galaxy tomorrow…
