Black Hole Cluster Emits Gas Cloud 6 Million Light Years Wide



Just think about what they are talking about....
Space.com just reported that scientists have identified a black hole emitting a gargantuan cloud.

To begin with, light travelling 186,000 miles per second takes 6 million years to span from one end to another of this cosmic blob.

"The plasma cloud is located about 300 million light years away near the Coma Cluster and is spread across a vast region of space thought to contain several galaxies with supermassive black holes, or active galactic nuclei (AGN), embedded at their centers."
