V404 Cygni is a binary system that is about 7.8 thousand. Light years from us. There is a black hole consuming its companion. This process was observed in June 2015, resulting in a large explosion that was captured by astronomers on Earth.
Scientists looked at the phenomenon again. Images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory Eight concentric rings. It’s thin as a result of the glow that has traveled through interstellar dust between our planet and the binary system.
Astronomers calculated that the closest ring formed from dust that is 3,363 light-years away, and the farthest is 6,934 light-years away. The researchers say that observations of V404 Cygni will provide us with more clues about the behavior of black holes in the future. For example, related to their magnetic field.
