This is how Baltimore would distort behind a moving black hole
posted November 24 2014 18:39.34 by Giorgos Lazaridis

This video is a scientific visualization of a black hole passing through Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The visual distortion is called gravitational lensing and its the result of light being bent by a massive object.

A black hole, with roughly the mass of the planet Saturn, is imagined to pass over the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD. The view of the buildings on the far side of the harbor are distorted using the calculated effects of Einstein's general relativity.
