The largest blackhole Sagittarius A * on Earth is 2000 light years closer

Earth is 2,000 light-years closer to supermassive black hole Sagittarius A*

Data from telescopes across Japan was combined with data from other projects in order to create an accurate map of the Milky Way. Not only is it closer to the center of the galaxy - and its massive hole in it, Sagittarius A * - it is spinning faster in segment. It is relatively easy to map two-dimensional coordinates of stars and other cosmic objects, but it is very hard to determine the distances of objects.

And distances matter - they help us determine the intrinsic brightness of objects. Which means it's about to be the most delusional time of the year, as well.

Another is the CK Vulpeculae object, which is a star that exploded 350 years ago. And one of those is Vera Radio Astronomy Survey, Conducted by the Japanese cooperation VERA.

"Because Earth is located inside the Milky Way, we can't step back and see what our Galaxy looks like from the outside", said Dr. Tomoya Hirota, an astronomer from the Mizusawa VLBI Observatory at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan and the Department of Astronomical Sciences at SOKENDAI, and his colleagues from the VERA Collaboration. Diameter dish. It's the same principle behind the Event Horizon Telescope that produced our first live image of a black hole's shadow.

And this is what astronomers have used to refine the position of our solar system in the Milky Way.

In August, VERA published its first catalog, containing data on 99 celestial bodies.

Sagitterius A* triggered a "cataclysmic" explosion recently enough to occur as our earliest ancestors walked the Earth, scientists believe, and a year ago was found to be sending out odd, unexplained flashes. From this map, scientists were able to calculate the center of the galaxy, the point around which everything revolves.

Vera-based measurements stabilize it at a distance of another 25,800 light-years.

What's more, according to the map, our solar system is traveling at 227 kilometers per second as it orbits around the galactic center - this is faster than the official value of 220 kilometers per second, the release added.

This change may not seem like much, but it could have an impact on how we measure and interpret activity at the galactic center - in the end, hopefully, the more complex interactions around SGRA * lead to a more accurate picture.

"The project was created to dedicate for the VLBI astrometry observations to reveal 3D velocity and spatial structures in the Milky Way". Astronomers hope that together, the telescopes participating in this project will provide measurements of unprecedented accuracy.
