What can old data tell us about our famous ? The shadow was present in the old observations, giving a same-size ring, but the radiation from the gas around it changes! See our new paper led by 👉 1/7

⁣Can you wobble? The M87 black hole does! The debuted the first image in 2019, but with NSF support, it was gathering data long before that. This data showed that the "shadow" of the M87 black hole wobbles over time:

M87*: you’ve seen the image - now watch the wobble!😉New insights from previously unpublished data for the lurking at the heart of galaxy shows that the ring of matter swirling around it wobbles over time!

De schaduw van het zwarte gat M87* blijkt te wiebelen. Dat bleek toen oa en en de rest van het team hun eerdere waarnemingen van het zwarte gat opnieuw bekeken.

With the image of M87* from 2017 in hand, we analyzed archival data sets from 2009-2013 to investigate the behavior of the black hole image across multiple years. The conclusion: the bright crescent persists but its brightness varies in time:
