nearby blackness

I've started to do some digging now, I'm curious, as to what the nearest black hole is.

After some quick research in, and then expanding outward with some Yahoo! searches, it looks like variable star V404 Cygni, aka GS 2023+338, or Nova Cygni 1989, is the closest candidate.

It's a mere 10 light years away.

Stone's throw!

Neat web site: Stardate's Black Hole Encyclopedia.
