And the object could be just the "tip of the iceberg" with many other similar black holes being hidden and waiting to be found, the astronomers say. The triple system is believed to be so close to the Earth that its stars can be seen from the southern hemisphere on a dark, clear night without the need for binoculars or a telescope. The Closest Black Hole to Earth Has Been Discovered. Are you sure you want to mark this comment as inappropriate?

Also on rt.com Closest black hole to Earth discovered just 1,000 light years away, ‘VISIBLE’ to the naked eye However, as is often the case in science, there was a competing theory: that the B3 III star was actually a low mass star that had been worn down by its companion, and that the initial calculations were off. I wonder that to. The new paper, 'A naked-eye triple system with a nonaccreting black hole in the inner binary', is published in Astronomy & Astrophysics. One of the two stars seems to orbit around the unseen object every 40 days, while the other sits at a further distance from both. I’m so worried now why did they even say that. I guess so. Instead, astronomers spotted its presence by watching the orbit of the system's inner star – which seemed to be disturbed by some large, mysterious object. Knowing what to look for should put us in a better position to find them," said ESO scientist Thomas Rivinius. Are you sure you want to delete this comment?

Wow, this is why I want to be an astronomer/astronaut! A triple system describes three stars, or in this instance two stars and a black hole, which orbit one another in space. They're formed when a dying star collapses inward under the pressure of its own weight. Like if u agree!!! But if a person is in the southern hemisphere, they may be able to see the stars of its system on a dark, clear night, without need for a telescope. A newfound black hole may be the closest black hole to Earth, and you can spot its cosmic home in the night sky without a telescope.. The space phenomenon revealed by experts at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) is just 1000 light-years from our planet. Space is a bit scary.. This is what makes them invisible. Its existence was identified because of its gravitational pull, forcing the inner star in its system into orbit. It allows our most engaged readers to debate the big issues, share their own experiences, discuss real-world solutions, and more. ... May 8, 2019-68. The first ever image of a black hole, captured by the Event Horizon telescope, as part of a global collaboration involving Nasa, and released on 10 April 2019. A newly discovered black hole is closer than any other to Earth, scientists say. Regions of space such as this are where new stars are born from a mixture of elements and cosmic dust, The first ever image of a black hole, captured by the Event Horizon telescope, as part of a global collaboration involving Nasa, and released on 10 April 2019. This is a interesting but at the same time a scary article to possibly read out to your friends or family. The fact that the black hole was not easily spotted means that there could be many more such systems waiting to be found, and that the new discovery could be just the "tip of the iceberg, according to Rivinius. SpaceX docks to ISS: Nasa astronauts land safely and make history. 1d … Nasa's groundbreaking decade of space exploration: In pictures, New black hole discovered closer than any other to Earth, 'Cosmic killer' black hole could solve space mystery, You may not agree with our views, or other users’, but please respond to them respectfully, Swearing, personal abuse, racism, sexism, homophobia and other discriminatory or inciteful language is not acceptable, Do not impersonate other users or reveal private information about third parties, We reserve the right to delete inappropriate posts and ban offending users without notification.

Scientists have uncovered a rare relic from the early universe: the farthest known supermassive black hole. The closest black hole we know of is V616 Monocerotis, also known as V616 Mon. The closest to Earth is V616 Monocerotis, which is 3,000 light-years away and nine to 13 times the mass of the Sun. I think the one that was closest to Earth before was called ‘Sagittarius A*’. Scientists are sending some slime into space! A black hole with millions of times more mass than the sun is hurtling towards Earth and will one day wipe out life as we know it. The system was first observed as part of a study on double-star systems, with scientists watching it to better understand those solar systems that have two suns. A team of astronomers have discovered what is thought to be the closest black hole to Earth. Not only is the newly found black hole nearer to our solar system then any other discovered, but it also forms part of something known as a triple star system which can actually be seen with the naked eye from Earth. The team were able to find the invisible space object by tracking its two accompanying stars using the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile.
