okee.. i have a question.. it may be stupid but it is an ongoing conversation with my roommate. If one could detect a black hole would it appear darker than the black of space? since there is NO light being reflected at all in the area in the detected black hole i would think that nothing could be seen and the total absence of visible light would cause it to appear darker this is all based on the fact that the hole had been detected because there is a cloud of gas around it that is in the process of being sucked in pls respond! :) thank you!
