it is such a wierd object
mysterious almost spiritual
would any of you consider a black hole to be opaque
A black hole is a really complicated thing thats not really easy to describe. If I HAD to, I would say that a black hole is an object whose gravity is so strong that light cannot escape.
But instead of listening to my bad oversimplification, I'd read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_hole
Also to your second question, the words 'transparent' and 'opaque' don't really apply here.
i have read it and i am trying to absorb it
but i am not an astrophysicist so i am going to see it in a different way
it is opaque to me in that its an object that is hard to understand-obscure
and possibly dark
the other definitions of opaque probably do not apply but i am not sure
not allowing light to pass through
Well it is not that hard to understand-once you accept certain base axioms.
Opaque and Transparent really don't apply here. Any light that passes through the event horizon (enters the black hole) will never come out, so in that way it is dark.
In actuality, black holes actually radiate light-but it is for complex reasons that I wouldn't worry about until you have grasped the more basic aspects of black holes.
by opaque he means
4. hard to understand; not clear or lucid; obscure: The problem remains opaque despite explanations.
Well I'm an idiot.
