The autoş MATIC Network of small ground-based telescopes ASAS-SN (All-Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae) that scans the heavens in search of supernova explosions, have discovered an incredibly powerful cosmic explosion, the brightness is at the peak of illumination exceeded the total brightness of all stars in the milky Way 50 times. The space object which has received the name ASASSN-15lh, was first discovered on June 14, 2015. A week later, the astronomer, Sub don (Subo Dong) from the Institute of astronomy and astrophysics Kavli (Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics) at the University of Beijing made a spectral analysis of light from ASASSN-15lh, expanding it into its spectral lines of different chemical elements, and discovered something out of the ordinary. The measurement results differed from the results of measurements of other similar events so drastically that the specialized software running in auto MATIC mode, are unable to recognize the object ASASSN-15lh explosion of a supernova.
