Grey Hole

Definition

Astronomy

  • Object which might be formed by the collapse of a massive star too small to form a black hole but too large to form a neutron star. Such an object would have a central black hole with material lying outside it and a sphere of photons outside the material layer. It would be possible for photons to escape from this sphere, making the Grey Hole visible – grey rather than black.
