For the first time, scientists believe they have detected a merger of two black holes with eccentric orbits.

According to a paper published in Nature Astronomy by researchers from Rochester Institute of Technology's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation and the University of Florida, this can help explain how some of the black hole mergers detected by LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration are much heavier than previously thought possible.

Eccentric orbits are a sign that black holes could be repeatedly gobbling up others during chance encounters in areas densely populated with black holes such as galactic nuclei.

his artist's concept illustrates a hierarchical scheme for the most massive binary black hole merger recorded to date.

Scientists from RIT and University of Florida used advanced computer simulations to show the black holes had eccentric orbits before merging.

Two supermassive black holes are locked in a dance in the OJ 287 galaxy.

The larger black hole is 18 billion times the mass of our sun and surrounded by disk of gas.

It is also orbited by a smaller black hole about 150 million times the mass of our sun that crashes through the disk and produces a flare brighter than 1 trillion stars.
