The Chandra X-Ray Observatory clocked a wind blowing at 20 million mph, about 3 percent of the speed of light, around a "stellar mass black hole,"
a type of black hole created by the collapse of a massive star.

Researchers called it the cosmic equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane, a wind that ranks among the fastest in the cosmos.
Future generations of space travelers might expect a sigmet on that: intense winds, inescapable gravitational field.

I can see the pirep to the ARTCC... it would be short and to the point... "Houston, we have a problem!"
