Gravitational lensing

  1. Aug 7, 2014 #1
    The dozen or so suns observed orbiting the black hole at the center of the Milky Way have exhibited classical continuous elliptical orbits about the black hole. How come there is no gravitational lens distortion of the suns image observed when the suns pass behind the black hole?

    Why do you think there isn't? And I think you mean "stars", not "suns".
