By a black hole? A supermassive black hole has been seen while it is consuming a star, not just the aftermath.

That`s one fine list, Mr. Bacon Pie.
I share your sense of too-badness.

So the only "first glimpse" is an artist rendering. Disappointment.

"could best be explained by a..."
"The team`s theory is that a star...."
"That jet was likely responsible for the mysterious burst...."
"Burrows estimates that...."
"might have been swallowed by the black hole...."

I know that artist`s conception is pretty strong evidence, but maybe it`s something no one`s ever seen before (well actually no one has seen this either).

Does this mean this is the first time an artist has ever tried to paint a star being consumed by a black hole?

Pfff... This is all nonsense. It can`t be true since the universe is only 6-7 thousand years old. Can I get an Amen?

A tad misleading. While the event itself must have been fascinating, I don`t particularly need to see just another artistic rendering of what it would look like.
