Mr Wang’s PhD supervisor, Professor Tara Murphy, added: “We have been surveying the sky with ASKAP to find unusual new objects with a project known as Variables and Slow Transients (VAST), throughout 2020 and 2021.

“Looking towards the centre of the Galaxy, we found ASKAP J173608.2-321635, named after its coordinates.

“This object was unique in that it started out invisible, became bright, faded away and then reappeared.

“This behaviour was extraordinary.”

After originally detecting the signal with ASKAP, the radio waves were confirmed using the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory’s MeerKAT telescope.
