By combining the light of three powerful infrared telescopes, an international team of astrophysicists has observed the accretion; phase of a supermassive black hole in the center of the galaxy.

This three-telescope interferometry is a major milestone toward directly imaging the growth phase of supermassive black holes,” said Sebastian Hoenig, a post-doctoral researcher.
