Abstract

There have been recent reports of flares at speeds of about 0.9 emanating in opposite directions from a small black hole or quasar within our galaxy. A quirk of geometry causes such flares to appear to be super1uminal. These reports might encourage the investigation of pairs of such flares associated with very distant quasars, thus opening the possibility of solving possible problems regarding the accepted interpretation of red shift data from distant bodies.
