: : : : : Can someone kindly tell me how far the closest Black Hole is from the Earth? Does it move? If it does, how fast? In what direction?........many thanks!!!! Please e-mail me!!!!

: : The first black hole discoverd is 14,000 light years from the earth and is called Cygnas X-i : : Hades is the nearest black hole to earth and it : : is near the star ,Veda. Sorry I do not know how close it is. : : For more info on black holes I suggest reading : : Black Holes and Time Warps,Einteins out ragious legacy. wtih aforward by steven Hawking. : : It is written by Kip S. Thone.

: Uhh, Black Holes are currently only a theory and are unproved. There is no such thing as a "closest black hole to earth", because science has yet to prove (or disprove) that black holes : actually exist. Astronomers have found evidence of black holes and physicists have proven their existence possible and likely. But no one has actually spotted one. The most likely candidate is Cygnus X-1. Black holes do move though how fast is uncertain. The expansion of the universe dictates their speed. They do however, rotate on their own. That speed is varied with each hole. They may also move through space by attraction to other massive objects/singularities.
