10 Years of Data Appears to Show Black Hole Eating a Star

Gizmodo reports that a newly published study reveals what seems to have happened when a star met a black hole at the center of two colliding galaxies.

In January 2005, the William Herschel Telescope in the Canary Islands first spotted bright infrared light coming from a set of colliding galaxies.

The galaxies were 150 million light-years away.

Scientists continued watching the scene for the next 10 years.
