Black holes represent the ultimate degree of compactness to which a stellar configuration can evolve. Having already called the neutron star a strange object, one cannot help labelling BH as weird. From the many fascinating aspects that are accessible via the full mathematical procedure we will indicate only a few points, showing that this is really a final stage of evolution, not just another late phase. We limit the description to non-rotating BH without charge.
