Time evolution (given relative to the epoch of pericentre passage) of the standard model. Shown are cuts through the density distribution (centred on S2) within the orbital plane (panels a–d) and X-ray 2–10 keV emission maps (perpendicular to the orbital plane), including the emission of the accretion flow (panels e–h). The white cross depicts the location of the BH and is located outside (to the lower right) of the shown region in panels d and h.
