Supermassive black hole in Milky Way pictured for first time - BBC News

A supermassive black hole that lives at the centre of our galaxy, the Milky Way, has been pictured for the very first time. Known as Sagittarius A*, the object is a staggering four-million times the mass of our Sun. For scale, the ring is roughly the size of Mercury's orbit around our star. Fortunately, this monster is a long, long way away - some 26,000 light-years in the distance - so there's no possibility of us ever coming to any danger. The BBC's Science correspondent Pallab Ghosh reports. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog #BBCNews
