I'm a bookworm. Yes, I'm weird.

"So what’s the problem?"
"It’s my reputation."
"No, no. Don’t be silly. Nonsense."
"It’s all right, Captain. We always knew you were a whoopsie."

The effect shown in the gif is called gravitational lensing. What is gravitational lensing?Gravitational lensing is the effect seen when an object behind a massive object is in the line of sight with the earth. For example:Earth ————>Massive Object—————->Far away objectWhen we try looking at the far away object, the massive object bends space-time around it, causing the light rays from the far away object to travel in a curved path around into our line of sight.As a result of this, we can often see the far away object magnified which helps astronomers understand the early universe. The gif shows a far away galaxy being gravitationally lensed by a closer black hole.

What is gravitational lensing?

Gravitational lensing is the effect seen when an object behind a massive object is in the line of sight with the earth. For example:

Earth ————>Massive Object—————->Far away object

When we try looking at the far away object, the massive object bends space-time around it, causing the light rays from the far away object to travel in a curved path around into our line of sight.

As a result of this, we can often see the far away object magnified which helps astronomers understand the early universe. The gif shows a far away galaxy being gravitationally lensed by a closer black hole.

Mysterious hot spots observed in a cool red supergiant 

Astronomers have released a new image of the outer atmosphere of Betelgeuse – one of the nearest red supergiants to Earth – revealing the detailed structure of the matter being thrown off the star.
The new image, taken by the e-MERLIN radio telescope array operated from the Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire, also shows regions of surprisingly hot gas in the star’s outer atmosphere and a cooler arc of gas weighing almost as much as the Earth.
