Accretion towards SgrA* SMBH in the Milky Way

SgrA* is the nearest supermassive black hole, located in the nucleus of our Galaxy.  There is a large reservoir of gas in the form of a circumnuclear ring at a radial distance of about 1pc.  We examine the evidence for accretion towards the nucleus. We argue that magnetic fields play a role in forming the visible structures.
