## New Movies

Members of the SXS collaboration are pleased to announce new movies
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Kgfxl1Jk6k) that show how the night
sky would look in the presence of a binary black hole merger.  The
image is distorted because the light rays that reach your eye don't
follow straight lines, but are bent (dramatically) by the enormous
spacetime curvature near the black holes.  The paths of individual
light rays are computed in order to make these movies.  Details can be
found in this paper (http://arxiv.org/abs/1410.7775).

## Inspiration

The fault, dear Brutus,
Is not in our stars,
But in ourselves...
