Sagittarius A*

In the center of the Milky Way lurks a fairly quiescent monster, a relatively small supermassive black hole named Sagittarius A*, a tiny entity compared to its much larger cousin, M87. How these engines of creation and destruction work vis a vis the galaxies that house them has perplexed researchers for years but with sophisticated tools such as the Event Horizon Telescope, these objects of fascination and dread are becoming better understood as seen by Knowledgable Magazine's in-depth article titled What the image of the Milky Way’s black hole really shows.

Read the rest of this detailed piece to see how our black hole was imaged if you dare. :)
