This image/this sequences shows the graviational wave which is radiated during a collision of two black holes. The two initial black holes merge at T~10.4 to form a larger black hole. The black holes are visualized as their `apparent horizon', which is some structure similar to the event horizon. The colors on the apparent horizons indicate the curvature at the surfaces (``gaussian curvature''); green indicates strong positive curvature, red spherical curvature (like on the surfaces of a sphere), yellow means flat areas, and cyan negative (hypervolic) curvature. The soft wrap-like structures are different intensity levels of the off-blasted gravitation wave (``real part of the Weyl-Scalar \Psi_4'').

This visualization of gravitational waves, computed in accordance with Einstein's theory of General Relativity, was generated using the Cactus Computational Toolkit. Teukolsky waves are a simple linearized solution to Einstein's equations, not related to black holes, but their understanding is essential for numerical relativity and the ability to compute them is crucial for evolving the more complex black hole spacetimes.
