Using magnets and magnetic marbles, demonstrate the effect black holes have on nearby stars. See them deflect as they pass near these gravitational giants and watch as stars are caught by invisible black holes. You may want to use the demo as an introduction to observing of location of black holes in the night sky or in combination with the Gravity Buckets below.
