Space scientists have found out a tiny black hole that could fall under a totally different class of objects. It has a size of 3.3 solar masses and is located near a huge star 2MASS J05215658+4359220.

The black hole system is ‘MAXI J1820+070’, at least 10,000 light years away, and was first discovered in 2018. Its mass is the equivalent of seven Suns compressed into a region smaller than the city of London.

The new visualisation of a black hole by NASA illustrates how the gravity of the giant celestial structure distorts our view, warping its nearby surroundings. It has been created with the help of a custom software at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

Scientists are analysing the gravitational-wave signals provided by LIGO and Virgo interferometer that provide details of a giant black hole which is so huge that until now has been thought to be physically impossible. So far, they have refused to confirm or deny the detection.

A black hole swallowing a neutron star has been identified for the first time, according to space scientists.

Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) a supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, suddenly glowed way too brighter than its normal state becoming 75 times more luminescent before going back to its normal state earlier this year.

Scientists have traced the star named S5-HVS1 which ejected out of the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) and has been moving at a massive speed of 1,700 kilometers per second since then.

Like many black holes, it is feeding on a nearby star, pulling gas away from the star and forming a disk of material that encircles the black hole and spirals towards it under gravity.
