According to media reports, a NASA satellite might have found the smallest black hole to date. Using the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer, astronomers from NASA have identified a specific X-ray pattern known to indicate a black hole.

The new finding is supposed to be located between 16,000 and 56,000 light years away. At the present time, it hasn’t been possible to determine a more precise distance.

The black hole is thought to have a mass that is only three times that of our Sun.
