Quasar- this is a black hole that is the brightest object in the universe and is thousands of times brighter than the stars in a galaxy combined! Light is shot out of either end in extremely long distances. The light we see coming from these today is very old meaning there are no quasars recently. They are all from far away but a new one can appear at any moment

An artist's illustration of the black hole at the heart of a quasar in the distant universe. The biggest black hole known to exist lives in the nearby galaxy M87. It's 2,000 times bigger than the Milky Way's supermassive black hole.

Monster black hole is the largest and brightest ever found

The largest and most luminous black hole ever seen dates back to when the universe was less than 1 billion years old.

A supermassive black hole lies at the center of this turbulent mix of multimillion-degree gas, dust, and cold gas in the galaxy Centaurus A.

New Telescope to Take First-Ever Black Hole Photo - A group of astronomers are meeting this week to plan out an ambitious and unprecedented project — capturing the first-ever image of a black hole.    The researchers want to create an Earth-size virtual instrument called the Event Horizon Telescope, a worldwide network of radio telescopes powerful enough to snap a picture of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy.

Researchers are meeting Wednesday to discuss the Event Horizon Telescope, a network of radio telescopes that could snap an image of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy.

Youngest black hole? This Chandra X-Ray Observatory image, obtained Feb. 26, shows a highly distorted supernova remnant that may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy. The color-coded composite image of the supernova remnant W49B combines X-rays from Chandra (blue and green), radio data from the Very Large Array (pink) and infrared data from the Palomar Observatory (yellow).

Meet the new record-holder for the LARGEST BLACK HOLE IN THE UNIVERSE (so far) in this EXPANDED and UPDATED version (in 1080p) of our most popular Cosmic Journeys episode.   Our Milky Way may harbor millions of black holes... the ultra dense remnants of dead stars. But now, in the universe far beyond our galaxy, theres evidence of something far...
