The largest known Supermassive Black Hole compared to our solar system

@stux thank you for the banana :blobcat_owo: I wouldn't have been able to comprehend the scale without it

@stux "The Schwarzschild radius of this black hole is 120 billion kilometers, giving a diameter of 240 billion kilometers, 1,600 astronomical units, or about 40 times the radius of Pluto's orbit, and [it] has a mass equivalent to four Large Magellanic Clouds."

@stux so *that's* the scale that qualifies as supermassive. Huh.
