The paper "Shadows of Kerr black holes with scalar hair" by P. Cunha, C. Herdeiro, E. Radu and H. Rúnarsson has been accepted in Physical Review Letters. This work shows Kerr black holes with scalar hair can exhibit new types of shadows in black hole physics. Observing black hole shadows is the primary target of the Event Horizon Telescope.
