It’s not a real pic in the sense of pulling out your phone and click....it’s really an image of radio waves being emitted and spewing out those colours (radiation) from said black hole 🕳 🎊 only here they used several telescopes from around the world to do so
We absolutely do. We know that any light that enters the hole is absorbed in some fashion by the force that compromises the inner portion of a black hole. Remember, this is the very first photo. It's monumental. Let's not forget the fist photo of Pluto. While archaic, it was monumental.
