The night sky is the inspiration for astronomy. Even though modern astronomy is carried out using large telescopes and electronic cameras, the beauty of the night sky is the reason most astronomers became hooked on their subject. Everyone can share this experience. Go far from any city or suburb, or travel into a wilderness area.

ALERT, the Apertif Lofar Exploration of the Radio Transient Sky, will investigate the Northern Sky with unprecedented speed and precision, to determine the nature of some of the most powerful flashes and explosions in the Universe.
In acoustics and audio, a transient is a high amplitude, short-duration sound at the beginning of a waveform that occurs in phenomena such as musical sounds, noises or speech. It can sometimes contain a high degree of non-periodic components and a higher magnitude of high frequencies than the harmonic content of that sound. The Burst and Transient Source Experiment(BATSE) on the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory launched in discovered 2, GRBs (and even more X-ray transients)lasting on timescales between a millisecond to seconds; and the all-sky monitor on the Rossi X-ray Timing Experiment, which scanned most of the sky every hour and a half, also.

Transient events when we think about galactic scales over which the SKA will be looking at the sky are events which change rapidly, unleashing typically vast amounts of energy as they do so. Events such as Gamma Ray Bursts or lly these events are only visible for short periods of time, sometimes in multiple wavelengths across the electromagnetic spectrum.

Rotating radio transients (RRATs) are sources of short, moderately bright, radio pulses, which were first discovered in RRATs are thought to be pulsars, i.e. rotating magnetised neutron stars which emit more sporadically and/or with higher pulse-to-pulse variability than the bulk of the known pulsars.
The working definition of what a RRAT is, is a pulsar which is more easily discoverable. The Transient Array Radio Telescope (TART) is a low-cost open-source array radio telescope consisting of 24 all-sky GNSS receivers operating at the L1-band ( GHz).
TART was designed as an all-sky survey instrument for detecting radio bursts, as well as providing a test-bed for the development of new synthesis imaging and calibration algorithms.

These transients have an implied all-sky rate that would make them the most common radio transient in the sky and yet most have no quiescent counterparts at other wavelengths and therefore no known progenitor (other than Galactic neutron stars Cited by: An all-sky isotropic surface density of bursting radio transients with similar rates, durations, and intensities as the unusual transient GCRT J−, discovered in wide-ﬁeld monitoring toward the Galactic center, is ruled out with high by: In The Sky Book, Misrach divides his images into three sections: Skies, Heavenly Bodies, and Night Clouds.

$ Radio-Sky #B This book now includes the newly released "Solutions Manual" that shows worked solutions. Radio Astronomy is undergoing a massive expansion. New facilities have huge fields of view, extremely rapid response and revolutionary software developments – multiple fields, lookback etc.
Perfect for transients. In all of these facilities, Transients science has been given a high priority ('key science'). Large teams have formed.The transient sky and the SVOM mission: strategy and observation program. While the main goal of the SVOM mission is to ensure the observation of about gamma-ray bursts per year, it is also a formidable tool for probing the transient sky.
