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.
A team of international astronomers have discovered a galaxy that has changed classification due to unique activity within its core. 🌌

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.
