assuming zero angular momentum and zero charge
I thought you might include in the newsletter, this social distancing advice for the astronomically inclined, which leaves the calculation as an exercise for the viewer.
Here are the relevant numbers:
Formula for the Schwartzschild radius of a black hole: R=2MG/c^2 (discounting charge and spin)
Gravitational constant (G): 6.67 X 10^-11 m^3/kg.s^2
Mass of Saturn: 5.68 X 10^26 kg
Have fun. My ZWO camera, which my wife ordered as a Christmas/Birthday gift for me, is finally due to arrive tomorrow! I figure that means dreary weather for the next month at least.
Your optimistic astro-buddy,
