Now What Could This Be?

NASA Announces Televised Chandra News Conference
WASHINGTON -- NASA will hold a news conference at 12:30 p.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 15, to discuss the Chandra X-ray Observatory's discovery of an exceptional object in our cosmic neighborhood.

The news conference will originate from NASA Headquarters' television studio, 300 E St. SW in Washington and carried live on NASA TV. 

What could it be? A new NEO (Near Earth Object)? Chandra only looks in the X-ray spectrum so that opens up possibilities.

I will not be able to see the press conference as today we walk over to Mexico to get new glasses. I will find out later... Interesting!

OK, It is a new Black Hole developing only 51 million light years away. It is unique because we will be able to study it much easier than any of the others. Neat!
