This phenomenon appeared from Earth in October 2020, reached its maximum brightness in a few days and disappeared in just a month.

A team of astronomers recently published a file of study in which they disclose the discovery of a file huge old explosion that occurred in a galaxy located in Several billion light years from Earth. This phenomenon appeared from Earth in October 2020, reached its maximum brightness in a few days and disappeared in just a month.

These sudden bright outbursts are known as a fast blue optical transient (FBOT, for its acronym in English). The ring discovered in 2020 was named ‘Camel’ (a game with the event’s technical name, ZTF20acigmel) and as demonstrated in the latest study, strong radiation waves continued to be generated. Even after months Visible light faded.

The researchers found that the Camel also glowed brightly at radio frequencies, indicating that the explosion traversed deep space at high speed, perhaps more than 160 million kilometers per hour. It is precisely these X-ray streams that indicate to astronomers that the “Camel” was severe cosmic eventAnd Like the formation of a black hole or a neutron star.

“Our work indicates that light emission in millimeters and radii and X-rays is a general property of transit (FBOT) with fast, luminous photovoltaic curves,” noted the research authors, who concluded that “active bursts in dense environments can represent large population of trans-galactic transients.”
