A black hole is defined as an object with an escape velocity of the speed of light. There is on e common circumstance in which a black hole is typically formed. This is after the death of a star. After the star can no longer support its mass via nuclear fusion, it begins to collapse in on itself. This results in a large amount of mass being compressed into a tiny volume. However, I propose an alternative method for black hole creation. In this paper, a relativistic black hole is defined as an apparent black hole caused by the effects of special relativity. When Lorentz contraction and mass dilation are applied, not only do black holes appear to be formed, but Hawking Radiation also appears to be affected.
