For those who'll believe in black holes when they see one

The Economist reports Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky: The universe’s darkest denizens are being dragged into the light.
"Feryal Ozel of the University of Arizona told the [recent American Astronomical Society (AAS)] meeting about progress on the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). This is designed to capture an image, built up from radio waves, of the Milky Way’s own supermassive black hole, dubbed Sagittarius A* because it is the brightest radio source in that constellation."
