LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA S230524x: Retraction of GW compact binary merger candidate
2023-05-24T20:50:40Z (a year ago)
J. L. Wright at Australian National University <>
The LIGO Scientific Collaboration, the Virgo Collaboration, and the KAGRA Collaboration report:

The trigger S230524x is no longer considered to be a candidate of interest. This candidate included at least one detection prior to the merger time but no significant detections that included the merger, which indicates this candidate is likely a noise transient.
