'Dark' Black Hole - Smallest Yet Detected

Wandering the Milky Way

A rogue black hole wandering

 the space lanes of our Milky Way galaxy alone could be the smallest black hole yet found

The black hole is 5,000

 light-years away and was discovered thanks to the power of its gravity to act as a gravitational lens

It was initially spotted

 by two ground-based surveys, the Polish-led OGLE And MOA 

The degree of gravitational

 lensing allowed them to conclude that the black hole has a mass about 7.1 times greater than the sun's mass.

However, a second

 team has now come forward with a different mass calculation.

The group, led by Casey Lam of the

 University of California, Berkeley, concluded that the object has a mass between 1.6 and 4.4 times the mass of the sun.
