Sag A*

Stars moving around the black hole Sag A*: these images were taken between March and July 2021 and show stars orbiting very close to Sagittarius A*. During the observations, one of these stars, S29, reached its closest approach to this supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way; the distance was 13 billion kilometres, which is just 90 times the distance between the Sun and Earth. In addition, the researchers discovered another star, S300, with the Gravity Instrument at the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI).
