Mini supermassive black hole in dwarf galaxy Mrk 462 by Chandra Telescope

Smallest Ever Supermassive Black Hole Found

Smallest Ever Supermassiv Black Hole Found. It was found using the Chandra xRay Space Telescope and is around 200,000 solar masses.

Stars moving around the black hole Sag A*: these images were taken between March and July 2021 and show stars orbiting very close to Sagittarius A*. During the observations, one of these stars, S29, reached its closest approach to this supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way; the distance was 13 billion kilometres, which is just 90 times the distance between the Sun and Earth. In addition, the researchers discovered another star, S300, with the Gravity Instrument at the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI).
