Astronomers have captured the first ever image of the giant mass black hole at the center of our galaxy, providing the first direct evidence of the existence of cosmic giants.

Located 26,000 light-years away, Sagittarius A* is a giant rip in space-time that is four million times the mass of our sun and 40 million miles (60 million km) wide. The image was captured by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), a network of eight synchronized radio telescopes located in various locations around the world.
