What you are seeing captured, is not the black hole. It is the energy being sucked in like a vacume from surrounding stars etc. You can't take a
picture of a tornado, what you are taking a picture of is the clouds and debris being tossed around by the tornado, or water if it is a water spout.
You can't take a picture of wind, just of the stuff the wind is moving. Making any sense here lol?
i see what you are saying, and to some degree I agree with you, but only because I too like to win arguments on Pedantic little definitions rather
than actual science and understanding.
if I can see an effect, and I can photograph the effect, the name we have for the phenomenon that causes that effect is a black hole, or a
then a photo of that effect *while not the actual event* is often referred to by the name of the supposed cause.
Pedantics at their finest.
From one anally retentive Pedant to another .. well done.
