The majority of bright gamma-ray transients that we observe in the sky, are produced by extragalactic gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). However, we know that there are other kinds of sources that can produce intense bursts of high-energy photons within our own Galaxy. GRB 070610/Swift J195509+261406, being just 1 degree away from the Galactic plane, is one of these sources and presents a peculiar behavior, as it shows strong flaring activity that has been observed in the optical and near infrared.
