What would happen if the whole solar system were to be absorbed by a nearby black hole in an instant? would people on earth realize anything different, because the relative distances between all the celestial bodies would remain constant because it was all absorbed at the same time? black holes are dense enough to absorb light. so would the light coming from the sun cease to reach the earth? would gravity be the same between the organisms on the surface of the earth and the earth? would the earth still be going around the sun in the same manner? this is just for fun. it's not schoolwork. just general curiosity.
