It has been proposed that an intermediate mass black hole can produce compact molecular clouds with large velocity dispersions. This model is called into question due to the discovery of several such short lived clouds, which suggests they are common, and hence it is unlikely that their formation involves an exotic object such as an intermediate mass black hole. In this paper we propose an alternative model, where supernovae produce such clouds. We apply our model to a such a cloud called CO-0… Expand
