Sagittarius Blackhole

I was underwhelmed this past week with the release of the Sagittarius Blackhole "image".

It is not a photo, but a generated image based on some unverifiable data from several sources. That data has been massaged into the "image" released.

Reports all proudly announce it was produced by ....... a computer scientist ....who helped develop an algorithm to turn vast amounts of EHT data into an image.

C'mon y'all.

So the "image" is basically a Photoshopped orange doughnut with some highlights and blur added.

I have managed to get a very clear photo of the actual blackhole as shown below. I think this is a first ! This photo is placed in Public Domain for others to use without need of acknowledgement.
