Abstract

We show that in some astronomical sources containing black holes, the signature of the circular photon orbit may be detected by searching for the shortest timescale in the variability data. A positive detection would provide the direct empirical support for Einstein's general relativity in its super-strong field limit, relevant to black holes.
