This black hole feeds on a dying star once a month

It seems that the universe is equipped with its own light switches.

Some 500 million Light year Far away, an unfortunate star the size of our sun gets sucked into a mini black hole every week – and astronomers found this situation because they noticed the wonderful flashes that accompany the event. These flashes appear to erupt when a black hole devours interstellar matter, then shine brightly for seven to 10 days before suddenly stopping, much like flicking a light switch. After nearly a month, the black hole headed toward the star again.
