UCLA Astronomers Investigating Abnormally Bright Black Hole

Scientists are trying to figure out why the black hole at the center of the galaxy just lit up brighter than ever. Astronomers at UCLA said they observed the super-massive black hole glowing with “unprecedented brightness” on four nights this year. The lead scientist says that indicates something interesting is happening in the region of the black hole. Known as Sagittarius A, the black hole is four million times as massive as the Sun, and is about 26,000 light years from Earth.
