Abstract: Marking the limits of our understanding of physical reality, black holes hold a fascination for young and old alike. Please join us as we discuss what we know, including recent observations of black hole mergers and the VLBI image of the event horizon of the supermassive black hole at the center of the large galaxy M87. We will also discuss what we still don't know about these enigmatic objects.
Telescope viewing (of objects that emit light!) after the show, weather permitting.
