Astronomers have discovered the brightest and fastest growing black hole to have existed in the last 9 billion years. The enormous cosmic entity is 3 billion times more massive than that Sun and swallows Earth-big chunk of matter every second.

The new supermassive black hole, known as J1144, is about 500 times the size of Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Waythat was recently photographed for the first time. A ring of super-hot plasma around the vast void also emits about 7,000 times more bright than our entire galaxy.
