Some people might say, the brightest thing in the universe are the stars. I also thought that, I thought that the brightest things in the universe were the stars, until i saw this video. To come to think that the brightest thing in the Universe is the Black hole itself, would be amazing. I would never imagine that the Black Hole is the brightest thing in the universe. The black hole itself is not the brightest thing in the universe but it is what the black hole causes. When a star is devoured by the black whole, the particles that are going around the black hole are so fast that it creates heat, therefore making the surroundings bright. Called a Quasars.
