Why no black holes closer to us[edit]

Why is there no black closer than 2000 ly away from us? Is it because none has been detected yet, or do scientists really believe there is no black hole within this radius? Thinking of the large number of short-living massive stars within this radius, it appears odd if there were no black holes. Tomeasy T C 20:17, 20 February 2016 (UTC)


This needs improvement, there are more black holes to add Such as v4641 sgr. - anonymous

Incorrect mass for A0620-00 ?[edit]

The article for A0620-00 says it's 6.6 Solar masses, not 11; and this seems to be confirmed in the paper linked in the article. --TiagoTiago (talk) 06:06, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Please fix table formatting[edit]

The table is badly mangled. Fig (talk) 09:27, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Sagittarius A* sorts as smallest.[edit]

If you sort by mass this table sorts Sagittarius A* as smallest. The mass should be listed in a different format so the sort works. Maybe 4.1x10^6? I don't know enough about how the sorting function on these lists work. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1700:8310:B1A0:F982:7B69:89AD:3506 (talk) 03:56, 29 November 2019 (UTC)
