Hi Courtney,

What exactly would you like to know about the event horizon. Essentially the event horizon is the beginning of the black hole. For example, if you have seen a picture of a tornado, the funnel cloud would be the event horizon. Or if you draw a cone, the position on the circle is the event horizon. When an object of any material composition, including light, pass the event horizon, they are trapped forever.
