A night at high speed: exploring the minute-cadence sky with the Evryscopes

The Evryscopes are array telescopes that cover the entire visible sky in each and every exposure. Based in the mountains of Chile and California, the systems together take a 1.3 Gigapixel image of the sky every two minutes, reaching depths of 16th magnitude in each exposure and much deeper with coadding. I will present the Evryscopes’ view of what happens on a typical night across the sky: superflares blasting habitable worlds, white dwarfs being caught in the act of formation, young and exotic stars eclipsing, and mysterious millisecond-timescale flashes appearing everywhere.
