Many active galactic nuclei (AGN) pairs have been detected in the past, but triple AGN are extremely rare, and only a handful has been detected before using X-ray observations.

Astronomers hope to understand how the reason why a black hole eats matter (a celestial object) that is in its orbit and also how it shoots out massive jet particles into outer space

The light detected from this jet was emitted at a very early age of the universe when it was 0.98 billion years old, almost one-tenth of its age now.

In the past few decades, it has become part of astronomical lore that at the center of every galaxy lurks a giant black hole into which the equivalent of millions or even billions of suns have disappeared. The bigger the galaxy, the more massive the black hole at its center.

The light illuminating the galaxy is a result of the blazing core of the supermassive black hole. Some of the light got leaked while the remaining was blocked by the dense patches of the dust ring around it.

According to new measurements and J2157* black hole has a Schwarzschild radius of around 670 astronomical units (AU). It is over five times the size of our Solar System.

Astronomers have identified new objects near the black hole of Milky Way galaxy which they believe are the product of two stars colliding in the presence of a black hole.
