Powerful flash on the dwarf of spectral class M
Astronomers are not yet able to clearly define what they the idea themselves, and recorded. In the network, this event was called ASASSN-18di. This is by the idea of a super power outage on a previously known and fairly cold star, a spectral class m star.
At this time, Astronomers have many times watched a Grand outbreak on the cold dwarfs. The dwarfs, though not large luminosity objects, but they also have a high level of magnetic activity. The idea goes like that in the depths of such like cold stars works great Dynamo machine, energy so to speak is accumulated and then released into the circumstellar space. By studying these emissions scientists better understand the nature of the origin of such a large energy potential.
Scientists from Ohio decided to observe such emissions more closely and they got a similar outbreak on a cold dwarf of class "M". All outbreaks and observations were recorded in a special catalogue. Observation and data collection took place in February 2018, while scientists worked within the project All-Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN).
Astronomers praised ASAS-SN, which was used to observe the night sky. The device is as follows the visible sector of the night sky and instantly captures the flash on cool dwarfs. This observation programme has, in fact, made it possible to collect a large database of such outbreaks on the cold dwarfs of spectral class L1 and M8.
The most interesting flash mentioned above occurred with the star, which is located at a distance of 7,200 light years from the observer, is the star of 11.4 magnitude in brightness. When there was a release of energy on the star, its brightness rose up to the level of 9.8. Scientists believe that the outbreak was probably the maximum possible. In other cases, even if there is an outbreak, the brightness of the star radiation does not increase. Here is a unique event is the place to be in life even the cold stars of the class M8 and L1.
