A black hole is burping up the remains of a star that it shredded and consumed nearly 3 years ago.

“This caught us completely by surprise — no one has ever seen anything like this before," says astronomer Yvette Cendes.

Astronomers have observed a black hole burping up stellar remains years after it shredded and consumed the star.

Black holes are some of the most elusive things in outer space.

They found that the black hole, dubbed AT2018hyz, was ejecting material at half the speed of light — five times faster than normal.
