NASA: ‘Milky Way’s Black Hole Shows Signs of Increased Chatter…’ September 23, 2015

Three orbiting X-ray space telescopes have detected an increased rate of X-ray flares from the usually quiet giant black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy after new long-term monitoring. Scientists are trying to learn whether this is normal behavior that was unnoticed due to limited monitoring, or these flares are triggered by the recent close passage of a mysterious, dusty object.

By combining information from long monitoring campaigns by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA’s XMM-Newton, with observations by the Swift satellite, astronomers were able to carefully trace the activity of the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole over the last 15 years. The supermassive black hole, a.k.a. Sagittarius A*, weighs in at slightly more than 4 million times the mass of the Sun. X-rays are produced by hot gas flowing toward the black hole.

The new study reveals that Sagittarius A* (Sgr A* for short) has been producing one bright X-ray flare about every ten days. However, within the past year, there has been a ten-fold increase in the rate of bright flares from Sgr A*, at about one every day. This increase happened soon after the close approach to Sgr A* by a mysterious object called G2.

“For several years, we’ve been tracking the X-ray emission from Sgr A*. This includes also the close passage of this dusty object” said Gabriele Ponti of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany. “A year or so ago, we thought it had absolutely no effect on Sgr A*, but our new data raise the possibility that that might not be the case.”

Originally, astronomers thought G2 was an extended cloud of gas and dust. However, after passing close to Sgr A* in late 2013, its appearance did not change much, apart from being slightly stretched by the gravity of the black hole. This led to new theories that G2 was not simply a gas cloud, but instead a star swathed in an extended dusty cocoon.

“There isn’t universal agreement on what G2 is,” said Mark Morris of the University of California at Los Angeles. “However, the fact that Sgr A* became more active not long after G2 passed by suggests that the matter coming off of G2 might have caused an increase in the black hole’s feeding rate.”

While the timing of G2’s passage with the surge in X-rays from Sgr A* is intriguing astronomers see other black holes that seem to behave like Sgr A*. Therefore, it’s possible this increased chatter from Sgr A* may be a common trait among black holes and unrelated to G2. For example, the increased X-ray activity could be due to a change in the strength of winds from nearby massive stars that are feeding material to the black hole.

GaiaPortal: “Steeled” resolution from the Higher Heart is called upon at this time, by ÉirePort, July 24, 2013

“Steeled” resolution from the Higher Heart is called upon at this time. The Steeled” resolution means a strong resolve to purpose intention to needs of Gaia.

All prior conflicting messages and conflicting intentions are resolved as each “steels” within, from Higher Heart Center.

Gaia calls each in their own way, for their own particular strengths, for Light service at this moment.

And thanks all who heed the call.

GaiaPortal: Centeredness in Gaia Conscious Operation is of High Value at this Time… by ÉirePort, June 25, 2013

Centeredness in Gaia conscious operation is of high value at this time. Lasting results for Gaia-New-Paradigm construction and Real-ization require Hue-Beings living from their center. Realization, Hue, Beings,

Outer type focuses become distractions if brought to center of immature soul structures.

BE-ing from the Gaia center is key for all Gaia-New-Paradigm construction team Hue-Beings.
