A "supermassive" black hole in the process of devouring a star.

 

For the first time, astronomers have captured a "supermassive" black hole in the process of devouring a star. This computer-simulated image shows gas from a tidally shredded star in a galaxy 2.7 billion light-years away being swallowed up by a black hole. Using ground- and space-based telescopes, a team of astronomers led by Suvi Gezari of Johns Hopkins University has identified the victim as a star rich in helium gas.
