Did astronomers see the light from two black holes colliding for the first time?

Astronomers may have seen the light from two black holes smashing into one another for the first time ever.

Black holes are completely dark and therefore invisible to light-detecting telescopes. So far, the only way astronomers have been able to “observe” black holes colliding is by detecting the resulting gravitational waves.
