The discovery of a supermassive black hole currently in our solar system was announced a few days ago by scientists.

According to the astrophysicists, the discovery was made while studying the galaxy PBC J2333.9-2343, which displayed “strange properties”.

The galaxy – about 657 million light-years away – was originally classified as a radio galaxy, but scientists realized that the cosmic phenomenon has rotated 90 degrees and now its center is “looking” towards Earth.

Researchers at the Royal Astronomical Society now reveal that PBC J2333.9-2343 spans nearly 4 million light-years – almost 40 times the size of our Milky Way.

Scientists are currently unsure what triggered the change in direction, although several believe that PBC J2333.9-2343 collided with another galaxy

It is also unclear how the direction of the black hole will affect our galaxy.
