Hole lot of shakin’ going on

A supermassive black hole (SMBH) is on the move, it seems. About 230 million light-years from Earth, the black hole is moving peculiarly at a speed of around 177,000 kilometres per hour, reports CNET. In a study published in the Astrophysical Journal, a team of astronomers cited abnormal activity in galaxy J0437+2456. A possible explanation is that the SMBH is from an external galaxy that collided recently with J0437+2456 … but there is a big hole in that theory 😉
