    Based on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sagittarius_A*

    So "mid to late 2013" - almost the time, are there any new observations yet?

    That is just referring to the gas cloud G2 isn't it? From what that page suggest, the observations of that gas cloud and how it reacts to the SMBH will indicate whether there is a 'body' keeping G2 intact. Either way, its going to be fantastic.
