first time posting a question, so please forgive me if I break any protocols.
I'm working on a writing project and while the science is not the focus, I want to make sure I get it right. So my question is 2-fold:
1) If an object orbiting a black hole and affected by gravitational time dilation, is it possible to experience a relative dilation of 1 / 120 near it as compared to an outside observer. Basically, for 10 years to pass "outside" for every month "inside".
2) I'm crafting a narrative for what that exactly would look like. I imagine that the stars in the sky would be 120x brighter, and that colors below visible would be blue-shifted into the visible spectrum, making the starfield a brilliant display of colors that you wouldn't see otherwise. Also, looking toward the Event Horizon would show some of the light from the other side severely red-shifted and twisted around the singularity (so you wouldn't ever actually SEE the E.H.). I imagine it would look like a dark, vaguely red ocean as the tidal forces gave it an almost water-like appearance.
Can anyone weigh in on these 2 questions and tell me if my understanding and assumptions pass muster?
