Here Come the G-Objects – A Curious New Class of Gas/Star Hybrids at the Center of Our Galaxy

Astronomers from UCLA’s Galactic Center Orbits Initiative have discovered a new class of bizarre objects (dubbed G-Objects) at the center of our galaxy, not far from the supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A. These objects look like gas and behave like stars. They are compact most of the time (like stars) and stretch out (like gas) when their orbits bring them closest to the black hole.
