Abstract:

The Galactic Center Supermassive Black Hole,  termed Sgr A*, is the best black
hole candidate that can be studied by VLBI technique. I would like to give a
brief introduction of the discovery and the following important observations of
this compact radio source. The observers are approaching the innermost region,
size of ~ 3 Rsch . Theorists provide good interpretation by theory of Black Hole
and Accretion Flow.
