On 17 August 2017, the merger of two neutron stars was detected and localised by the Advanced LIGO+Virgo network. After a global alert was triggered, the resultant kilonova was detected by over 70 observatories around the world.
This animation by OzGrav depicts the timeline of the detection of the event.
