this black hole is bigger than our solar system. The event horizon you are seeing is downright bigger than the orbit of Neptune.

@starwall But by my half-arsed calculations the event horizon is 26.7 AU and apparently Neptune's semi-major axis is 30.1 AU.

If you ask me the Solar System's size is that of the Sun's Hill sphere out at 120,000 AU. Don't mind me minimizing one of the most massive known black holes right here on the Fediverse.

@_aD @starwall how did you come to 26.7 AU? that sounds a little small.
