Transient astrophysical phenomena articles from across Nature Portfolio

Transients refer to astronomical phenomena with durations of fractions of a second to weeks or years. Typically they are extreme, short-lived events associated with the total or partial destruction of an astrophysical object.  The events can generate emission at all or specific wavelengths both in electromagnetic radiation and gravitational waves.  They can appear to be extremely bright and can be observed over cosmological distances.
