EVN helps to reveal a clandestine black hole in our Galaxy NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope and the NSF's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) provided new insights into a faint radio source in the direction of the globular cluster M15.


Radio astronomers see black hole come to life 42 million light years away, 20 million times the mass of the Sun, and coming back to life. A team of radio astronomers, led by Dr Megan Argo of the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, and JIVE astronomer Dr Ilse van Bemmel, are watching a previously dormant black hole wake up in a dramatic display as material falls on to it for the first time for perhaps millions of years.
