GHJ2008 3 (also know as XTE J1650-500) is a binary system located 26 000 light years from Sol in the constellation of Ara. It was firstly observed in the beginning of 21st century and registered as transient binary X-ray source. The black hole was claimed to have a mass of 3.8 solar masses, which back then made it the lightest ever found black hole. Later the claim was retracted and the approximations were about 5–10 solar masses. Years later detailed system scan revealed that first calculations were right and black hole has a 3.8 solar masses. For now the system also contains a K-Class Yellow-Orange star that will likely be absorbed by the black hole in the next several hundred years.
