Fig 1. A white dwarf and it's companion star. The purple color shows the gamma-ray emissions produced by shock wave. (produced by NASA)
Fig 2. Fermi observations of ASASSN-16ma. (produced by Kwan-Lok Li)
Fig 3. The Gamma-ray and optical light curves show a remarkable correlation, implying that the majority of the optical light comes from reprocessed emission from shocks rather than the white dwarf. (produced by Kwan-Lok Li)
