It is very hard not to say amazing words when taking photos of space. The pictures of planets, galaxies, and nebulas can be considered as wonderful creations ⁠— a mix of science and art. And most of the astronomers are still looking for new celestial bodies that make us amaze and afraid.

A new black hole about 1,000 light-years away from Earth was found by a group of astronomers and scientists from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile. The cosmic body that they saw was identified as a black hole, applying a new study published in Astronomy and Astrophysics following the change of position of its neighboring stars.

Scientists were trying to know the unusual behavior of the two stars in a system called HR 6819. Thomas Rivinius, an ESO scientist, said that one of the stars is rotating very fast that it’s almost flying apart. A few of them are thinking that there may be another object nearby, causing the two stars to move differently.

Rivinius and his team found out that the stars seemed to be revolving around a celestial object that was about four times or as big as the Sun. But as when they looked for the first time, there was nothing in the middle of the system. “We could exclude any type of star with that mass being present,” says Rivinius. “So if there’s something with that mass in the system, it must be a black hole.”

There’s no need to worry about this new discovery, for it is a thousand light-years away from us. But on the other side, it is a great learning that there might be even more black holes in all parts of the universe- and even our galaxy.
