Post KEN .. Can You See The COW ?? 
 
Back in October 2014 .... "the galaxy CDF-S XT1 suddenly glowed 1000 times brighter than all of the stars of that galaxy for a few minutes, and then went back to a dim spot in the visible oblivion again. None of our present knowledge can explain what or why it happened."


On 17-06-2018 a bright new transient source,ATLAS18qqn (AT2018cow) was reported.

The speed that it 'grew' is intriguing ..

What's your opinion ??

Are we witnessing another big bang ??
Birth of a magnetar ??

Or

Aliens are testing their "planet destroyer gun" ??

The Galaxy that 'glowed' 1000 times brighter. That was years ago Rx    and it could have been caused by a number of things.
Here's an quick video about that event: https://vimeo.com/210958980


and as far as 'Cow', it appears that it may have been just another SuperNova.
At first it was thought to have been a Transient object moving in front of the Galaxy in our line of sight. Nothing strange about that as it happens on occasions, but this one was slightly larger and brighter (could be because it is closer), but a SuperNova in the distant Galaxy seems to be the favoured opinion currently  

Here's a bit about it:  https://wis-tns.weizmann.ac.il/object/2018cow

Always interesting stuff going on out there  


But to answer your main question, can I see it. It is high enough on my Northern horizon for me to see it if it wasn't so bloody cloudy every night! I am waiting for a clear night so I can check it out.

If I get to see it before it fades away I'll let you know, and hopefully get some photos of it.

Cheers, Ken.

Thanks for the answer & link Ken ..

Yeah, I'm aware that what we see in the sky ISN'T happening as we see it ..

As you said .. it is within 'our' sky's viewing .. which made me wonder ??

Rxy, COW has now faded in Magnitude too much to be seen. By the time the sky clears in the next few nights it won't even be visible at all from Professional Observatories.

Oh well, the next one will only be weeks away. They are pretty common
