Scientists may have just seen birth of a black hole for the first time ever
Scientists might have seen a black hole being born for the first time ever. A mysterious bright object that lit up the night sky could have been a black hole or neutron star at the moment of its creation, researchers say. The bright glow – spotted from Earth, 200 million light years away – appears to have been the debris of a bright star being swirled around the edge of a black hole. Scientists have been puzzled by the spectacularly bright anomaly spotted deep in space since it was spotted last June.
