Astronomy has reached another level after capturing the first image of the black hole. The mystery that always runs into the heads of millions of people that how is the look of the black hole and where it is?

For such queries, astronomers have given the answers by successfully capturing the image of the black hole. To get its first image, eight telescopes have been used in the process.

The first image that has been shared by the astronomers showed the outline of the black hole which is showing a halo of dust and gas.

Well, this historic moment was captured by Event Horizon Telescope, which is a group of eight radio telescopes that are scattered through Antartica to Spain and Chile.

However, it was not easy to get a single image of the black hole. Thanks to over 200 scientists who have to spend their nights and days to bring the first look for the world.

The special thanks to the 29-year-old scientist, Katie Bouman, who led the creation of an algorithm to produce the first image of a black hole.

Well, hats off to our scientists who bring the imagination to reality!
