Is the event horizon smooth or bumpy? If a black hole can emit radiation (Hawking radiation) like photons, these photons appear somewhere around the event horizon surface off small regions sporadically and randomly but they (or a single photon) will not emerge from a large surface area. Is this the case? If so how large is the patch of the event horizon surface area that just emitted a single photon? and how much energy does the photon carry just after it is emitted? will it be in gamma ray range or in radio wave range?
Re: bumpy horizon? how large is the patch of the surface emmiting a photon?
