Astronomers Find Recoiling Supermassive Black Hole

In a distant galaxy, astronomers have found a possible black hole recoiling at a high speed. Normally, black holes are at the very center of the galaxy, but this one, found by Marianne Heida wasn't. Under an x-ray, the hole was so bright it can be compared best to other bright supermassive black holes in the universe. This black hole is more than a billion light years away.

I think that this is bad. It might take a long time, but a black hole could come towards the Earth. It is good that scientists are starting to be able to learn more things about black holes. This one might even be more powerful or dangerous since it is not in the exact center where normal black holes are.
