The Pan-STARRS1 Surveys
Pan-STARRS1 has carried out a set of distinct synoptic imaging sky surveys including the $3\pi$ Steradian Survey and the Medium Deep Survey in 5 bands ($grizy_{P1}$). The mean 5$\sigma$ point sourceExpand
Relativistic jet activity from the tidal disruption of a star by a massive black hole
Observations of a bright X-ray flare from the extragalactic transient Swift J164449.3+573451 conclude that they have captured the onset of relativistic jet activity from a supermassive black hole. Expand
The X-Ray Observatory Suzaku
High-sensitivity wide-band X-ray spectroscopy is the key feature of the Suzaku X-ray observatory, launched on 2005 July 10. This paper summarizes the spacecraft, in-orbit performance, operations, andExpand
Ultra-bright Optical Transients are Linked with Type Ic Supernovae
Recent searches by unbiased, wide-field surveys have uncovered a group of extremely luminous optical transients. The initial discoveries of SN 2005ap by the Texas Supernova Search and SCP-06F6 in aExpand
Discovery of the Onset of Rapid Accretion by a Dormant Massive Black Hole
Massive black holes are believed to reside at the centres of most galaxies. They can be- come detectable by accretion of matter, either continuously from a large gas reservoir or impulsively from theExpand
Slowly fading super-luminous supernovae that are not pair-instability explosions
Observations of two slow-to-fade super-luminous supernovae that show relatively fast rise times and blue colours, which are incompatible with pair-instability models are reported. Expand
The Hyper Suprime-Cam SSP Survey: Overview and Survey Design
Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) is a wide-field imaging camera on the prime focus of the 8.2m Subaru telescope on the summit of Maunakea. A team of scientists from Japan, Taiwan and Princeton University isExpand
Selecting superluminous supernovae in faint galaxies from the first year of the Pan-STARRS1 medium deep survey
The Pan-STARRS1 (PS1) survey has obtained imaging in 5 bands (grizyP1) over 10 Medium Deep Survey (MDS) fields covering a total of 70 square degrees . This paper describes the search for apparentlyExpand
Toward Identifying the Unassociated Gamma-Ray Source 1FGL J1311.7-3429 with X-Ray and Optical Observations
We present deep optical and X-ray follow-up observations of the bright unassociated Fermi-LAT gamma-ray source 1FGL J1311.7-3429. The source was already known as an unidentified EGRET source (3EGExpand
First data release of the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program
This paper presents the second data release of the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program, a wide-field optical imaging survey on the 8.2 meter Subaru Telescope. The release includes data fromExpand
