According to scientists, the mass of a black hole is 6 million times greater than the Sun, so we can not even imagine its size. It's in the center Galaxy it is 375 million light years away from ours.
It belongs to the constellation Volans, where the star touched we see in the picture has a size similar to the Sun. According to Patrick Vallely, a researcher University of Ohio "When we were able to capture the image we said, my God, we have just captured a star torn through a black hole! When we were celebrating this special moment. "
Finally, the team responsible for the discovery has shown that it is exciting to capture in a photo a situation in the Universe that could never have been restored before, so now expect to collect more data about this situation and thus be able to predict this kind of event in advance .
