 For the first time, humans have seen black holes about 55 million light-years away from Earth.


The protagonist is a supermassive black hole at the center of Virgos supergiant elliptical galaxy M87, 6.5 billion times the mass of the sun and about 55 million light-years from Earth. The photo shows a bright ring structure with a black center, which looks a little like a doughnut. The black part is the shadow cast by the black hole, and the bright part is the accretion disk rotating around the black hole at high speed.
