Black Hole, Revealed: Astronomer Unveil The First-Ever Image Of The Black Hole Across The Universe

Recently, Astronomers have taken the first-ever image of a black hole, which is located in a Messier 87. It has been described as "a monster" - More than 50 million light-years away, - three million times the size of the Earth –  Complete information about black hole have been published today in Astrophysical Journal Letters.

The Professor Heino Falcke of the Radboud University of Netherlands, who proposed the experiment, told through BBC News that the Black Hole was found in a galaxy called M87.
"What we see is bigger than the size of our entire the solar system," he said.

"supermassive black hole mass is 6.5 billion which is equal to the sun, and it is one of the heaviest black holes that we believe exists. This is an absolute monster, who is the heavyweight champion of the black hole in the universe."

As Prof. Falcke describes it, the image shows a completely shiny "ring of fire", around a completely circular dark hole. The bright halo is caused by falling superhit gas into the hole. The light in the compound galaxy is much brighter than other billions of stars - that is why it can be seen at such distance from Earth.

The edge of the dark circle in the centre is the point at which the gas enters the black hole, which is something that has such a large gravitational pull, also the light cannot escape.
