V1357 Cygni, also known as Cygnus (or Cygni) X-1, is a binary system of a black hole and a blue giant. It was discovered in 1964 during pre-interstellar spaceflight due to the very high levels of x-rays produced by mass from the blue giant falling into the black hole. This was the first such source of powerful x-rays which was widely accepted to be a black hole, and the source of a famous wager between noted 20th century scientists Kip Thorne and Stephen Hawking.
A single high-metal planet can also be found orbiting the two bodies, likely captured (source).
