John Rowe's Animations
Two galaxies, each containing a black hole at their centre, merge. The two back holes orbit one another at the centre of the merged galaxy, sending out gravitational waves as they perturb spacetime in their vicinity. These gravitational waves eventually reach our Galaxy, the Milky Way, where they modulate the signals from pulsars. The apparent pulsar period is alternately red-shifted and blue-shifted as the wave passes over the pulsar and the Earth.
