Astronomers famously snapped the first ever direct image of a black hole in 2019, thanks to material glowing in its presence.

But many black holes are actually near impossible to detect.

Now another team using the Hubble Space Telescope seems to have finally found something nobody has seen before: a black hole which is completely invisible.

Concept of a black hole acting as a lens on background light.

First image of a black hole.

Black holes are what's left after large stars die and their cores collapse.

They are incredibly dense, with gravity so strong that nothing can move fast enough to escape them, including light.

How do we study black holes if we can’t even see them?

Could a black hole “eat” an entire galaxy?

What would happen if you fell into a black hole?
