New Black Hole Discovered by Astronomy Experts

New Black Hole Discovered by Astronomy Experts

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An explosion at a star 30 years ago in nearby galaxies suspected of creating a new black hole, astronomers reported on Monday.

The observations made by infrared rays say supernova, dubbed SN 1979C is a black hole is formed, said a team of astronomers from the United States and Europe.

"If our assumptions are correct, it is the closest example for observation of the creation of a black hole," said an expert from the Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysics Center in Massachusetts, Daniel Patnaude, who led the study.

An amateur astronomer from Maryland, Gus Johnson, discovered a supernova in 1979 on the edge of a galaxy called M100, and other astronomers examine it after its discovery. Light and infrared rays from the fragments has taken over the past 50 million years to get to the earth with the light speed of 300,000 miles per second, or about 10 trillion miles per year.

Observation Center for NASA's Chandra Infra Rays, the European Space Agency XMM-Newton, and the Center of the German Rosat Observations have seen that it emits infrared rays stable source of light.

Infrared ray analysis supports the idea that the observed object is a black hole and it also will draw in the object that fell from a supernova or perhaps from a binary star, astronomers said.

The scientists believe that black holes can be created in several ways, in this case because a star which is about 20 times the mass of the Sun which will become a supernova and then explodes into some solid things that suck objects around them into the core of the black hole .
