This is a list of black holes (and stars considered probable candidates) organized by size (including black hole stars of undetermined mass); some items in this list are galaxies or star clusters that are believed to be organized around a black hole. Messier and New General Catalogue designations are given where possible.

Supermassive black holes and candidates[edit]


Intermediate-mass black holes and candidates[edit]

Stellar black holes and candidates[edit]

Multiple black hole systems[edit]

Binary black holes[edit]

Trinary black holes[edit]

As of 2014, there are 5 known triple black hole systems known.[7]
