'Wandering' black hole is captured moving between two galaxies as they collide 4.5 BILLION light years away



Supermassive black holes are in the centre of most galaxies.
The huge objects, some 100,000 to 10 billion times the sun's mass, are said to be the glue that holds galaxies together with their gravitational pull.
But astronomers have spotted one black hole that appears to be wandering around, making its way from a small galaxy into a larger one.
THE XJ1417+52 BLACK HOLE The wandering black hole was found at the edge of galaxy GJ1417+52, about 4.5 billion light years from Earth.
Its extreme brightness makes it likely the black hole has a mass of around 100,000 times that of the sun. 
It is 10... read more
