comment What does this depiction of a black hole in the movie Interstellar mean?
My first thought: it looks like a glass pane with a dimpled hole. That Wikimedia image led me to Einstein Ring, the formal term for that dimple. Turns out, Wikipedia has images of observed Einstein rings! It seems no Einstein ring from a black hole was ever observed.
