V4332 Sgr experienced an outburst in 1994 whose observational characteristics in many respects resemble those of the eruption of V838 Mon in 2002. It has been proposed that these objects erupted because of a stellar-merger event. Our aim is to derive, from observational data, information on the present (10-15 yrs after the outburst) nature and structure of the object. We present and analyse a high-resolution (R = 21 000) spectrum of V4332 Sgr obtained with the Subaru Telescope in June 2009…

Optical spectropolarimetry of V4332 Sagittarii
The eruption of V4332 Sgr was observed in 1994. During the outburst, the object became extremely red, so it has been considered as to belong to red transients of the V838 Mon type. Optical
Strong linear polarization of V4332 Sagittarii: a dusty disc geometry
The eruption of V4332 Sgr was observed in 1994. During the outburst, the object became extremely red, so it is considered as belonging to luminous red transients of the V838 Mon type. It has recently
VLT/UVES spectroscopy of V4332 Sagittarii in 2005: The best view on a decade-old stellar-merger remnant
V4332 Sgr is a red transient (red nova) whose eruption was observed in 1994. The remnant of the eruption shows a unique optical spectrum: strong emission lines of atoms and molecules superimposed on
Evolution of the stellar-merger red nova V1309 Scorpii: SED analysis
One very important object for understanding the nature of red novae is V1309 Sco. Its pre-outburst observations showed that, before its red-nova eruption in 2008, it was a contact binary quickly
Post-outburst spectra of a stellar-merger remnant of V1309 Scorpii: from a twin of V838 Monocerotis to a clone of V4332 Sagittarii
We present optical and infrared spectroscopy of V1309 Sco, an object that erupted in 2008 in a stellar-merger event. During the outburst, V1309 Sco displayed characteristics typical of red

V4332 Sgr is a red optical transient that erupted in 1994. It is generally considered to have been due to a stellar merger similar to V838 Mon and V1309 Sco. I obtained optical images of the site
The dusty aftermath of the V1309 Sco binary merger
We present mid-IR photometry and spectra of the merged binary V1309 Sco taken between 18 and 23 months after outburst. Strong mid-IR emission and a solid state absorption feature indicate the

Context. Stellar mergers are expected to take place in numerous circumstences in the evolution of stellar systems. In particular, they are considered as a plausible origin of stellar eruptions of the
Common Envelope Ejection for a Luminous Red Nova in M101
We present the results of optical, near-infrared, and mid-infrared observations of M101 OT2015-1 (PSN J14021678+5426205), a luminous red transient in the Pinwheel galaxy (M101), spanning a total of
Transients from the Cataclysmic Deaths of Cataclysmic Variables
We explore the observational appearance of the merger of a low-mass star with a white dwarf (WD) binary companion. We are motivated by recent work finding that multiple tensions between the observed
