    Graphic representation of the collision of two black holes

    This image shows a visual representation of a collision of two black holes thought to have occurred 1.1 to 2.2 billion light years from Earth near the constellation Eridanus. The spheres at the center represent the event horizons of the black holes, and the elevation and color of the surface indicates the strength of the gravitational field at that point. Orange is strongest, dark blue is weakest. Image courtesy NCSA.
