The central region of the Milky Way galaxy as photographed by the Sobro telescope. The image shows many stars in a field of view that is about 0.4 light-years wide. The star S0-6 (in the blue circle), the subject of this study, is about 0.04 light-years from the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* (in the green circle).
