"In what is being hailed as a "groundbreaking discovery", astronomers have for the first time observed two supermassive black holes orbiting around each other in a distant galaxy, according to new research.
In an article published in the Astrophysical Journal, researchers have detailed how they used radio telescopes to detect what appeared to be two black holes moving in relation to each other in radio galaxy 0402+379."

Third gravitational wave detection puts new spin on black holes
"For the third time, physicists have detected a gravitational wave: a tiny ripple in the fabric of space-time.
Like the two previous detections, it came from two colliding black holes, but this pair was much further away and may have been spinning in different directions."
"The discovery, reported today in the journal
Physical Review Letters, has important implications for our understanding of black holes, dark matter and the early Universe.
It was made on January 4 this year, when an international research team picked up the infinitesimal wobble produced by two black holes, 3 billion light-years away.
