Astronomers are still trying to explain an eruption and massive burst of radiation from a black hole they were observing for four days at the end of April this year.  

The black hole is known as Sagittarius A and is in the middle of the Milky Way, about 26-thousand light years from Earth.

To find out more, KCBS Radio news anchors Jeff Bell and Margie Shaferr spoke with the Assistant Director of the Morrison Planetarium in Golden Gate Park, Bing Quock.
