The Location of the FRB 150807 (image) International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research Share Print E-Mail Caption The yellow circle shows the typical location of an FRB. There are thousands of stars and galaxies in this direction. Because the burst was very bright we were able to locate it to a small region near the edge of that circle, shown as the pink banana-shaped region in the inset. In this region there are only 6 detected galaxies. The position of the most likely host galaxy, VHS7, is highlighted on the plot.
