More About Black Holes
There are two types of black holes. There are stellar holes which are 10-24 solar masses (one solar mass is the size of our Sun) with an event horizon only a few miles across. These are created by supernovas and are the most common type of black hole.
Then there are supermassive black holes. Scientists believe they form at the center of large galaxies when the galaxies form. They are billions of solar masses and have an event horizon as big as our solar system. Every galaxy has a supermassive black hole at its center, even the Milky Way has one that is billions of times more massive than the Sun.
