Vatican Sends Up Black Smoke, Signaling No New Pope

After day one of the Papal Conclave, the Cardinals have sent up black smoke from the Sistine Chapel which means no new pope has been selected yet.

It took the Cardinals all day to come to the no decision, and when the black smoke arose it was dark out. Many had gathered at Saint Peter’s Square to witness the possibility of a new pope, but no such luck just yet.

The New York Times reports that the first vote usually goes this way, since the 115 Cardinals that are voting are essentially all candidates. This is seen as a preliminary round to see who gets the most votes among the group. The Papal Conclave will go on until a new pope is chosen.
