Tuan Do reassured everyone on Twitter, saying “what is going on with the black hole will not affect the Earth” as it is 26,000 light years, or 260 quadrillion kilometres, away. Besides this, it is behind a vast amount of dust. reports citing foreign media that an astronomer from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), has shared a 2.5-hour time lapse of images of the supermassive black hole Sgr A* with a record amount of glow around it. Researcher Tuan Do, whose team is studying this giant in the centre of our galaxy at the W. M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, observed that it became 75 times brighter this May.
