On Sep 14, 2015, the two interferometric detectors of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detected gravitational waves from a binary black hole system. Denoted GW150914, the signal swept in frequency from 35Hz to 250Hz, and had a peak gravitational-wave strain of 1.0e-21.  This is the first direct detection of gravitational waves and the first observation of a binary black hole merger.
