Closest black hole to Earth discovered just 1,000 light years
away, ‘VISIBLE’ to the naked eye
Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory have
identified the closest black hole to our solar system yet
discovered and, as it turns out, it’s been hiding in plain
sight and is actually visible to the naked eye (kind of).
The black hole in question is 1,000 light-years from Earth in
the Telescopium constellation and forms part of a triple
system, called HR 6819, which is how the ESO stargazers
managed to find it in the first place.
