What is TON 618?

TON 618, alternatively capitalized Ton 618, is a monstrous, hyperluminous radio quasar sitting in the constellation of Canes Venatici, 18.2 billion light-years away from Earth. [1] It was once thought to be a small blue star within the Milky Way, but its actually one of the brightest known quasars.

How big is TON 618 compared to other stars?

TON 618 is as bright as 140 trillion suns and has a mass of about 66 billion suns. For comparison, all the stars in our galaxy combined share a mass of only 64 billion suns. That is, TON 618 is over 15,000 times more massive than Sagittarius A*. How much bigger is TON 618 than the solar system?

What is the origin of the TON 618 Quasar?

In 1970, a radio survey at Bologna in Italy discovered radio emission from Ton 618, indicating that it was a quasar. Marie-Helene Ulrich then obtained optical spectra of Ton 618 at the McDonald Observatory which showed emission lines typical of a quasar.

How big is the Nebula TON 618?

In the case of Ton 618, the enormous Lyman-alpha nebula surrounding it has the diameter of at least 100 kiloparsecs (320,000 light-years), twice the size of the Milky Way.

What is a TON 618 Quasar?

The TON 618 quasar is a 66 billion solar mass black hole about 10 billion light-years away from us. It has a radius of about 1300 AU, or about a fiftieth of a light year. In common with most quasars it is surrounded by a galaxy of stars, about which not a lot is known, because the energy radiated by TON 618 outshines its galaxy by orders of

What is the origin of the light from atonement 618?

TON 618 is believed to be an accretion disc of intensely hot gas swirling around a giant black hole in the center of a galaxy. The light originating from the quasar is estimated to be 10.4 billion years old. The surrounding galaxy is not visible from Earth, because the quasar itself outshines it.

What is the TON 618 black hole?

Well, first, we should know that TON 618 is a black hole that currently is identified as a quasar. The size of the black hole itself is scary; it has a mass of 65,000,000,000+ Suns and it’s about 32.5 times wider than the Solar System.

What does the TON 618 spectrum look like?

Like other quasars, Ton 618 has a spectrum containing emission lines from cooler gas much further out than the accretion disc, in the broad-line region. The size of the broad-line region can be calculated from the brightness of the quasar radiation that is lighting it up.

TON 618 is as bright as 140 trillion suns and has a mass of about 66 billion suns. For comparison, all the stars in our galaxy combined share a mass of only 64 billion suns. That is, TON 618 is over 15,000 times more massive than Sagittarius A*. How much bigger is TON 618 than the solar system?

Is TON 618 a supermassive black hole?
