Event Horizon


Event Horizon

The point nearing a black hole at which light can no longer escape. An object falling into a black hole will appear to spread out on the event horizon without ever entering it. To an outside observer, time slows down in the vicinity of the event horizon. But, if the observer were to enter the event horizon, the observer would not experience a change in the flow of time.
