Astronomers have taken the very first image of a black hole, located in a distant galaxy of 40 billion KM, and astronomers have named it ‘A Monster’.

The black hole is 500 million trillion km away, the image was taken by a network of eight telescopes across the world.

Details have been published today in Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Prof Heino Falcke, of Radboud University in the Netherlands, who proposed the experiment, told BBC News that the black hole was found in a galaxy called M87.

“What we see is larger than the size of our entire Solar System,” he said.

“It has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the Sun. And it is one of the heaviest black holes that we think exists. It is an absolute monster, the heavyweight champion of black holes in the Universe.”

The image shows a ‘ring of fire’ as described by Prof Falcke, surrounding a perfectly circular dark hole. The bright halo is caused by super-heated gas. This light is brighter than all of the countless stars combined! That’s why it can be seen from afar distance from Earth.

The picture was revealed at simultaneous press conferences across the world today, including one in Europe that you can watch in the following video.

A new booking method will be adopted at metro stations as per instructions from the Minister of Transport, the new method will depend on credit cards in an attempt to reduce the crowd at ticket booths.
