Well this is disappointing, since I was rather hoping it would just swallow the planet at this point:

No danger to Earth

The black hole is some 26,000 light-years away and poses no danger to our planet. Do said the radiation would have to be 10 billion times as bright as what the astronomers detected to affect life on Earth.

You can say "It is huge" in English. We dont have feminine and masculine nouns, like in French. ;)

Interestingly enough, our galactic black hole is about the same angular size, as viewed from Earth, as this black hole:

The gigantic black hole of the galaxy M87 ,the first photo of a black hole has a mass according to the last observations, of 6.8 billion of Sun and could "swallow" all our solar system, There is about 100 million black hole in our galaxy.
