Star Cloud Snack for Milky Way’s Black Hole Center

“The giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way is preparing to gobble up a tasty gas cloud in a cosmic meal astronomers are eager to witness. …” (from through Yahoo!News)

Keep in mind as you watch the video, that in fact this event has already happened in real time. Due to the speed of light, a light year (used to measure distance) is actually reporting how long ago in the past that which we are “seeing” now happened. Note in the video the number 27,000 light years mentioned as the distance of the Milky Way’s center black hole to the Earth. Thus, in fact, this galactic snack has long ago been devoured, burped, and recreated “out the other side.” Nonetheless, we will watch with amazement and be reminded of how small we are in the scheme of things and how perfect creation is.
