Mathematical Modelling of a Gravitational Optical Phenomenon in the Milky Way Centre

  •  Vladimir Leus    


The astronomical data obtained from the observations of an enigmatic object hidden in the centre of our Galaxy suggest possible optical phenomena due to the light bending. The existence of the gigantic collapsar (super-massive black hole) located in the centre of the Galaxy and the presence of a very dense cluster of stars all around it, allows us to propose a new approach due to the extraordinary stellar “crowd” and consequent multiple light ray deflections. Consequently, a refulgent optical aureole, which should be detectable by infrared observation, may be predicted.
