Chuckled at this yesterday on Pete Wilson’s afternoon radio show on KGO in a discussion with Andrew Fraknoi, an astronomy teacher at Foothill College (Los Altos Hills, Calif.):

We have never seen the blackness of the black hole, but we see black holes the way we often see teenagers. We see them because they’re eating, and the mess they make as they eat, it reveals them.”
