NASA scientists have released the world's first images of a black hole devouring a star.
The event took place in a galaxy 3.9 million light years away.
Experts captured the extraordinary pictures after a powerful Nasa telescope detected intense X-ray flares there.
They were caused when the sun-like star plunged too near its galaxy's central black hole.
Black holes have a powerful gravitational pull that sucks things in and devours them.
The researchers were led by Professor David Burrows of Pennsylvania State University, US.
He told UK scientific journal Nature: "Incredibly, this source is still producing X-rays.
"It behaves unlike anything we have ever seen before."
