It’s amazing of how does a black hole looks like! I read that scientist captured the image with eight telescopes across the world. Black hole is larger than the size of our solar system and the mass is 6.5 billion times than our sun. It’s the biggest black hole that we have ever known!

Now having the first image can help researchers to learn more about black holes. Who knows what scientists can discover?

Check out this list of "ultramassive black holes."  TON638 is estimated at 66 billion solar masses.  There are about 30 on the list that are at least 10 billion solar masses, which makes them "ultramassive."
