I March 2014 a gas cloud is supposed to collide with a black hole. The gas cloud named G2 is three times the mass of the earth but is so far away that we will only be able to see the collision with NASA's special Swift telescope. This will be a big event because Astronomers predicted this years ago and they are excited to see what reactions it will cause.
