ASKAP measures the delay between the wavelengths of the FRB, allowing astronomers to calculate the density of the missing matter.

In this edition of Looking Skyward Dr. Regina Jorgenson discusses the discovery of missing matter and a rare sighting in the sky. (Note, the incident referred to took place early on the morning of Friday, June 19, 2020.)
