My Dad pictured the birth of a black hole!

Guys, this is big! My Dad's project took pictures of the gamma ray burst GRB 080319B, the biggest one ever observed, visible with the naked eye! This thing most probably was the birth of a black hole!

The pictures are on Pi of the Sky's official website.

Polish speaking readers, see also the press release, an article in Dziennik, a radio podcast.

Non-Polish speaking readers, see also here or here and I promise to update as soon as more articles appear.
