An announcement this week could mark the first time anyone has actually seen a black hole.

Every image of a black hole right now is an artist’s rendering, but that could be about to change.

Astronomers have linked radio dish telescopes around the world into an Earth-size camera to deliver the first-ever image of a black hole.

The telescope collaboration is set to make a big announcement of results this week.

Astronomers want to photograph the circular opaque silhouette of a black hole cast on a bright background.

More information on the effort is available in the video below.
