20th century astronomers discovered a source of intense photons at 511 keV, which was known to be the result of positron-electron annihilation. After study determined that the source was equal to annihilation events of 10 billion tons per second of positron-electron pairs, it was dubbed The Great Annihilator. The only possible explanation was a large black hole.

Recent surveys found two black holes and a set of T-Tauri stars in orbit. The primary black hole has almost 200 solar masses and an unusually large radius of 550 kilometers. The secondary black hole has 66 solar masses and a radius around 200 kilometers. The system appears to be located in an unusually dense field of dust, obscuring most nearby stars.
