The black hole looks exactly like how physicists predicted it wouldâlike a weird, blurry bagel. While this documentation of a scientific phenomenon was tremendously exciting for some, other members of the general public were a tad less impressed. Regardless, the achievement is certainly one for the books, especially forÂ Dr. Katie Bouman.
Of course, within a number of hours, the black hole-related memes began to circulate. Some people thought they had managed to locate the Eye of Sauron, proof of a gargantuan space donut, or a secret cat.

Regardless of whatever you think the black hole might be, people are certainly enjoying themselves with the creative liberties one is allowed when divulging the secrets of the universe.
