CK Vulpec­u­lae was first spot­ted in 1670, a vis­i­ble ob­ject in the night sky that changed in bright­ness be­fore dis­ap­pear­ing and reap­pear­ing twice, then fi­nally van­ish­ing from naked-eye view. Mod­ern tele­scopes have con­firmed it to be the rem­nant of two col­lid­ing stars, but it is still not known ex­actly what kind of stars were in­volved.
