GNU description of tar file format:

Particular quotes that are relevant:

>Physically, an archive consists of a series of file entries terminated by an end-of-archive entry, which consists of two 512 blocks of zero bytes

>Each file archived is represented by a header block which describes the file, followed by zero or more blocks which give the contents of the file. At the end of the archive file there are two 512-byte blocks filled with binary zeros as an end-of-file marker

The header itself is 257 bytes padded with NUL until it reaches 512.
