A strange natural phenomenon identified by Harvard scientists as a cosmic burp was recorded by the Very Large radio telescope system located in New Mexico – USA.
According to Daily mail, Mysterious black hole AT2018hyz has been observed since 2018, which is also the year scientists discovered it had swallowed a star. But instead of ejecting a certain amount of matter into space, the mysterious black hole suddenly “hibernates” for 3 years.
But by 2021, Very large system Suddenly “bombarded” by a strange black hole that suddenly exploded for several months. Radio waves emitted violently by it were determined to be material from the star that it tore into pieces and swallowed several years ago.

This mysterious event has been studied by research teams from numerous institutes, schools and centers affiliated with Harvard University in the United States.
According to Dr. Yvette Cendes of the Harvard Center for Astrophysics, lead author of a study just published in Journal of Astrophysics, This is the first black hole phenomenon “suck” meals for many years before spitting out feedback material.
The phenomenon of a black hole eating something then spewing out matter usually occurs when an unlucky star approaches the black hole and is torn apart, then turns into a long hot noodle, also known as “tidal disturbance” (TDE)will make the black hole glow spectacularly.
The special thing about this TDE is not only the delay of 3 years, but also the unimaginable speed – instead of having an average speed of 10% of the speed of light, the speed of the flow of matter this time reaches up to ‘at 50% speed. light.

Black holes are one of the most mysterious objects in the universe because scientists cannot actually “see” them directly, but can only observe them indirectly through the light coming from the matter they release during meals. Therefore, a strange and unprecedented phenomenon like the one that just happened with AT2018hyz will open an interesting door to study the behavior of black holes more clearly.
AT2018hyz is a black hole located 665 million light years from Earth. The star it swallowed had a mass about 1/10 that of our Sun.
