Astronomers have detected unusual movements of gas clouds near the centre of our galaxy, and they could be pointing the way to the most elusive species of black hole, according to a new study. For the longest time, we weren’t even sure if these types of black holes existed.

Researchers tracking the gasses in the middle of the Milky Way have concluded the clouds are orbiting an object 10,000 times the mass of the Sun – and yet, when they look at where that object should be, nothing is there.

The most obvious explanation is a quiescent black hole, one that isn’t actively feeding, and therefore is emitting no detectable radiation.
