The world got a look at the first image of the supermassive black hole at the center of our own Milky Way galaxy.

Astronomers believe nearly all galaxies, including our own, have these giant black holes at their center/.

The colorized image unveiled Thursday is from the international consortium behind the Event Horizon Telescope, a collection of eight synchronized radio telescopes around the world.


The Milky Way black hole is called Sagittarius A, near the border of Sagittarius and Scorpius constellations. It is 4 million times more massive than our sun.
