And since black holes are so dark, there is no light at all to shine on them.
What makes this even more amazing is that the density of a black hole is actually quite tiny compared to its size and distance from the ground, and it can’t be detected with ground-based telescopes until it is so far away it falls into the electromagnetic and gravitational fields of our Solar System and can only be accurately observed by NASA’s Kepler space telescope. All other data points have been made by astrophysicists.
To add to the intrigue, we must also note that there are approximately 10,000 galaxies that lie just on the plane of the Milky Way, as opposed to the 90,000 galaxies that are actually on the edge of the Milky Way like this dwarf black hole, although we shall not name them here because their location, distances and other variables make them difficult to identify.
What all this means is that the star that we are looking for (our Sun as seen from here) is actually well hidden in the dark space that surrounds the Milky Way , meaning we can only see it by spotting other stars in this area of the sky. And as for how far away it is, well, it is well within the “edge of the Milky Way .”
I won’t be able to provide a more detailed description of this star with the spacecraft that we have, but I will write a summary of what you need to know after you have seen the star. In addition, there are some additional pictures I made at this telescope and posted here as a Google Drive file with my comments. I was able to get a good image of this nebula without the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys on, so I was able to use my telescope with other resources. I think you’ll be surprised by how much detail you can see with your eyes while staring at the night sky. It’s really pretty.
We can say for sure from now on that this image has NOT been “borrowed” from here and that this is a Hubble image of this star. I was able to use my telescope without any other telescope-use on November 16, 2008 with the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys. I really hope you don’t believe me when I say this, but that is how it actually happened. If you know of others, please do not hesitate to contact me; it does happen to me all the time and it will probably happen again soon . Thanks.
