Roughly every 114 days, almost like clockwork, a galaxy 570 million light-years away lights up like a firework. Since at least 2014, our observatories have recorded this strange behaviour; now, astronomers have put the pieces together to figure outRoughly every 114 days, almost like clockwork, a galaxy 570 million light-years away lights up like a firework.

A Distant Galaxy Is Flaring With Strange Regularity, And Scientists Have Figured Out Why

Despite their name, black holes can give off bright flares of light, usually as they shred stars. Most of those are one-off events, but now astronomers have discovered an extragalactic Old Faithful that fires up like clockwork every 114 days.Despite their name, black holes can give off bright flares of light, usually as they shred stars that wander too close. Most of those are one-off events, but now astronomers have discovered an extragalactic Old Faithful that fires up like clockwork every 114 days.
