Description

The eROSITA All-Sky Survey is a treasure trove for exploring the transient and variable X-ray Sky. Utiling the Near-Real Time Transient Analysis (NRTA) software system, we discovered the first bright transient on December 31st 2019. The event, SRGt J123822.3-253206, was discovered in two consecutive scans over the position during which it faded a rapidly. Here, we present the results from the eROSITA data analysis, supported by follow-up optical/near-IR observations with GROND at the MPG 2.2m telescope, and describe possible origination scenarios for the event.
