In this podcast, we answer the question – what happens when what you are looking for, isn’t there? We share two reports, one which looked for — and didn’t find — repeated radio bursts from a previously observed Fast Radio Burster (FRB). Another, we share a report of a search for expected radio emission from a black hole candidate: the observers report their non-detection. Then, we re-visit from our previous podcasts, Nova V392 Per. Observers share a a report of high resolution optical spectroscopy, and estimate the distance to this Nova.
After the show, we invite you to examine the results even further at our website; and join the discussion online at Twitter using #OutThereNow.
In this podcast:
- ATel 11605 High-resolution optical spectroscopy of Nova V392 Per
- ATel 11606 Upper limits on radio afterglow emission and previous outbursts for the very bright FRB180309 from observations with the Lovell Telescope
- ATel 11611 X-ray spectral hardening and radio non-detection of MAXI J1535-571
