The flat spectrum radio quasar (FSRQ) PKS 1510−089 is known for its complex multiwavelength behavior, and is one of only a few FSRQs detected at very high energy (VHE, E > 100 GeV) γ-rays. VHE γ-ray observations with H.E.S.S. and MAGIC during late May and early June 2016 resulted in the detection of an unprecedented flare, which reveals for the first time VHE γ-ray intranight variability in this source. While a common variability timescale of 1.5 hr is found, there is a significant deviation…
