Supernova (SN) 2018cow (or AT2018cow) is an optical transient detected in the galaxy CGCG 137-068. It has been classified as a SN due to various characteristics in its optical spectra.

We found a variable behavior in the 0.3-10 keV X-ray light curve of SN 2018cow, with variability timescales of days. The observed X-raydoi:10.1093/mnrasl/sly145 fatcat:rf6xzd7h3vb6tkmxtrzeju54dq
