Black hole announces itself to astronomers by tearing a star apart

A hitherto undiscovered black hole announced its presence to astronomers when it tore apart and devoured a star that wandered too close to it.

The medium black hole in a dwarf galaxy a million light-years from Soil shredded the star in an event astronomers call a Tidal Disruption Event (TDE). The TDE made itself visible when it emitted a burst of radiation so powerful it momentarily outshone every star in its dwarf galaxy combined.
