Numerous Radio Signals Have Been Spotted From The Center Of Our Galaxy

A new research accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal magazine and currently available on the arXiv prepress server, describes the discovery of ASKAP J173608.2-321635, a radio signal source just discovered near the center of our galaxy. Experts have not yet understood what it is.

“ASKAP J173608.2-321635 could represent part of a new class of objects discovered through radio image polls,” explained a team of astronomers led by Ziteng Wang of the University of Sydney in Australia. The observations were conducted using the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP).

ASKAP J173608.2-32163 is a very strange radio object: it is very variable, emits radio waves for weeks at a time and then disappears quickly. Moreover, before now, the object had never been seen in previous surveys, although between April 2019 and August 2020, the signal appeared in the data 13 times.

It is currently very difficult to understand what the source of the object is and there are several stars that could be involved in the process. It is most likely a pulsar, or a neutron star that emits wide rays of radio light. More mysterious, the object shares some properties with a sighted signal near the galactic center known as “Galactic Center Radio Transit” (GCRT), three of which were identified in the 2000s.

New observations could solve the mystery behind the object. All we can do is wait.
