Astronomers have discovered a new black hole in a dwarf galaxy. This is stated in an article published in Nature Astronomy.

As experts explain, when a star passes by a black hole, it shreds and collapses, “spaghettifies,” and at the same time its material begins to swirl around the black hole, shrinking and heating up. The result is a flash, which is convenient for astronauts to find black holes.

As the star was dying, astronomers discovered the black hole AT 2020neh in the dwarf galaxy DSS J152120.07+140410.5, which is 850 million light-years from Earth. The effects of tidal disruption are visible in frames taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. A newborn black hole has an average mass, so it is difficult to see in any other way.

“We are excited by this discovery because it shows that we can use tidal events to find more intermediate-mass black holes in ‘quiet’ dwarf galaxies as well as measure their mass,” said the study authors from the University of California, San Francisco. Santa Cruz..
