The Japanese researchers detected visible light waves emerging from the V404 Cygni black hole when it became active for the first time in 2016 years in June 2015.
Scientists from NASA have confirmed they have apparently seen something come out of a black hole for the first time ever light bursting from the centre of a supermassive blackhole in the
Scientists have finally seen a powerful beam of light from the first confirmed neutron star merger – 130 million years after it started its journey across the stars.
Feb 12, 2016 · A new sound file released today (Feb. 11) reveals the sound of gravitational waves rippling through space-time as two black holes merge, forming one giant black hole. «It’s the first time …
Scientists have spotted dim visible light from the region around a black hole, light that can be seen even by stargazers with a medium-size telescope.
Japanese researchers detected light waves from V404 Cygni – an active black hole in the constellation of Cygnus, the Swan – when it awoke from a 26-year-long slumber in June 2015.
A short flash across the visible and invisible light spectrum was spotted by astronomers across the globe. Previous detection of gravitational waves have been from the collision of black holes in remote regions of space more than a billion light years away. It became the first ever neutron star merger to be observed and confirmed by visual astronomy.
The researchers say that the black hole at the centre of Pictor A releases a huge amount of gravitational energy, as material swirls toward its event horizon. This energy produces a jet of particles that streams over a distance of 300,000 light-years.
This is the first evidence that X-rays can be born much closer to the black hole in the heart of an accretion disk, where they are then reflected, amplified, and focused like a flashlight.
A small, dark region in the space near the visible companion indicates that light cannot escape from that region, which is the characteristic feature of a black hole. All things, except light, are attracted by gravity.
NASA’s Swift Gamma Burst Mission spacecraft first detected the gamma-ray flash, called Sw 1644+57, within the constellation Draco, at the center of a galaxy nearly 4 billion light-years away.

The Death star has nothing on this: Supermassive black hole spotted spewing jets of gas spanning 300,000 light years Black hole is in the galaxy Pictor A, 500 million light years from Earth
The black hole appears to have ripped apart a star that wandered too close, creating a powerful beam of energy that crossed the 3.8 billion light years to Earth. Your source for the latest
