This Is How A Supermassive Black Hole Looks

You can't see black holes. They absorb everything, even light. But you can see how things looks around them. In fact, you are looking at one right now: The supermassive black hole at the centre of galaxy M84,

M84 is in the Virgo Cluster of galaxies, 50 million light-years from Earth. This black hole has the mass of 300 million Suns. Scientists used Hubble Space Telescope's Imaging Spectrograph to capture this zig zag shapes, which shows the "rapid rotation of gas at the galaxy's center" as it gets eaten by the greedy bastard.
