Astronomers have detected one of the brightest pulsars in the known universe

A blip that scientists once wrote is a distant galaxy may actually be the brightest pulsar ever detected outside the Milky Way.

Named PSR J0523−7125 and located The earth in the Large Magellanic Cloud (an orbiting satellite galaxy Galaxy), the newly identified pulsar is twice as wide as any other pulsar in the region and 10 times brighter than any known pulsar outside our galaxy. In fact, the object is so large and bright that researchers initially interpreted it as a distant galaxy – however, new research published May 2 in the Astrophysical Journal Letters suggests that this is not the case.
