MFW I read it as "we'll get ripped apart."

well theoretically it has already been ripped apart. Probably millions of years ago, as it takes time for light to travel...

The center of our galaxy (the galactic center) is about 27,000 light years (give or take about 1,000) from Earth. Therefore, it takes approximately 27,000 years for the light to reach us and allow us to see whatever happened there when the light began its journey.

If the gas cloud reaches the black hole at the galactic center next year, then we wouldn't see it happen for approximately another 27,000 years.

If we will see it happen next year, then it actually happened about 27,000 years ago.

If the event does indeed occur next year, and by "we" you mean those alive this millennium, then OP's state is not physically possible.

Distance to galactic center:

Did you know that when a black hole consumes too much space dust at a time, it will spit it out as shown on the picture

What exactly do you mean.

Has the black hole ripped the gas cloud apart some twentyish thousand years ago, and we get to see it next year, or will the black hole rip the gas cloud apart next year and we get to see it in some twentyish thousand years?

It's cool because this has technically already happened and it's like seeing into the past.

(if this is true) that cloud would have probably been ripped apart for ages now, considering the galactic center is thousands of light years from us... All we can do now is mourn our loss

If I can see something get ripped apart by a black hole, then that's way too ******* close for my liking.

I believe that we will need a somewhat-powerful telescope to see that. If we can see it with the naked eye, i just hope it's pretty bright to get through light pollution!

If anything, we'll get to see it on YouTube.

Actually, it probably did that years ago. We're only just seeing it now due to the speed of light.
