We'll find out in a week, but the buzz is they have a big result to announce...

Quote:
The European Commission, European Research Council, and the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project will hold a press conference to present a groundbreaking result from the EHT.

....

A total of six major press conferences will be held simultaneously around the globe in Belgium (Brussels, English), Chile (Santiago, Spanish), Shanghai (Mandarin), Japan (Tokyo, Japanese), Taipei (Mandarin), and USA (Washington, D.C., English).


The technological horsepower to pull off this observational miracle is incredible...

You can just barely see two faint extensions of the orange shading, extending to the upper left and lower right (approximately 10:30 and 4:00 assuming we're looking at a clock face). I don't think it's the accretion disk, but what do I know - I think the accretion disk is the more brightly colored circle in the center. I wonder if those 'extensions' are the fountains of ejecta?

Edit: Best (simple) explanation for the lopsided shading I've seen so far, gives you a little more perspective on the potential orientation of the black hole:
