  • We present multi-wavelength follow-up campaigns by the AstroSat CZTI and GROWTH collaborations in search of an electromagnetic counterpart to the gravitational wave event GW 170104. At the time of the GW 170104 trigger, the AstroSat CZTI field of view covered 50.3% of the sky localization. We do not detect any hard X-ray (>100 keV) signal at this time, and place an upper limit of ≈4.5 x 10^(-7) erg cm^(-2) s^(-1), for a 1 s timescale. Separately, the ATLAS survey reported a rapidly fading… CONTINUE READING
