We present X-ray and radio observations of the Fast Blue Optical Transient (FBOT) CRTS-CSS161010 J045834-081803 (CSS161010 hereafter) at t=69-531 days. CSS161010 shows luminous X-ray ($L_x\sim5\times 10^{39}\,\rm{erg\,s^{-1}}$) and radio ($L_{\nu}\sim10^{29}\,\rm{erg\,s^{-1}Hz^{-1}}$) emission. The radio emission peaked at ~100 days post transient explosion and rapidly decayed. We interpret these observations in the context of synchrotron emission from an expanding blastwave. CSS161010 launched…

Supernovae and transients with circumstellar interaction
• M. Fraser
• Medicine, Physics
Royal Society Open Science
• 2020
A brief overview of some of the interacting supernovae and transients that have been observed to date are presented, and an attempt to classify and group them together in a phenomenological framework is attempted.
Evidence for a Compact Object in the Aftermath of the Extra-Galactic Transient AT2018cow
Evidence is presented for a high-amplitude quasi-periodic oscillation of AT2018cow’s soft X-rays with a centroid frequency of roughly 225 Hz which argues for the presence of a compact object in AT 2018cow which can either be a neutron star or a black hole, and disfavors circumstellar medium interactions for the origin of X-ray emission.
Fast Optical Transients from Stellar-mass Black Hole Tidal Disruption Events in Young Star Clusters
• Physics

• 2021
Observational evidence suggests that the majority of stars may have been born in stellar clusters or associations. Within these dense environments, dynamical interactions lead to high rates of close

A WC/WO star exploding within an expanding carbon–oxygen–neon nebula
Observations of the supernova SN 2019hgp show that it occurred within a nebula of carbon, oxygen and neon, and was probably the explosion of a massive WC/WO star, and suggest that massive Wolf–Rayet stars may be the progenitors of some rapidly evolving transients.
A Swift Fix for Nuclear Outbursts

In November 2020, the Swift team announced an update to the UltraViolet and Optical Telescope calibration to correct for the loss of sensitivity over time. This correction affects observations in the
