How can a black hole be identified?
Black holes are not directly identified...
Some theories say a black hole is related to existing quasars.
At the  center of a quasar is a black hole which is feeding.
There may be other conditions also that suggest an existance of a black hole too.
Off hand I only have heard of one.
