A mysterious object is getting close to our galaxy
A enigmatic dust cloud is being destroyed by the Milky Way's enormous black hole.
There have been many different activities in space lately. Balloons seen over countries, images of different objects occur online and now there is a mysterious object getting close to our galaxy. The world has seen many interesting things ever since coronavirus happened. For the last couple years we have seen pandemi, Russia-Ukranian war and a massive earthquake that occured in Turkey, looks like we are doomed to even more.
An object is getting closer to our galaxy
Astronomers are watching as a strange dust cloud is torn apart by the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy. Using one of the most potent telescopes in the world, the W. M. Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea in Hawaii, scientists have been tracking the cloud's path for the past 20 years. The observations have shown that as the filament wrapped around the black hole, it progressively grew longer until it reached its current length of 3,000 sun-Earth distances.
This situation of course reminded everyone the movie "Look Up" but the truth might be far from that. "This is a unique chance at observing the effects of the black hole's tidal forces at high-resolution, giving us insight into the physics of the galactic center's extreme environment," Anna Ciurlo, assistant researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles, and lead author of the study, said in a statement
