The hibernating stellar magnet

The newly discovered object, known as SWIFT J195509+261406, showed intense flaring activity over a three day period. One of such flare is demonstrated here (and in the accompanying video). The images, obtained with the 0.8-m IAC80 telescope at Teide Observatory (Spain), show the source over a time span of about 30 minutes, during which the source brightens quickly then fades away. Forty of such flares have been recorded by the team of astronomers.
