Size Comparison of M87 Black Hole and Our Solar System

This size comparison shows the picture of the M87 black hole by the Event Horizon Telescope (the first ever image of a black hole) with a scale image of the Solar System overlaid on it. The latter shows the Sun, Pluto (the farthest planet from the Sun), and Voyager 1, the deep-space probe that is currently farthest from Earth. (click to enlarge)
