Johnny, what can you make out of this?
I can make a black hole or a gamma ray burst or a hypernova...

But with iPTF 14gqr, that's not what happened. Only material about a fifth of the Sun's mass was ejected in the explosion - and that explosion was pretty weak.

My question is, what is a neutron star, that is light years away, doing with our Sun's mass?

Those things are gonna have a crap ton of angular momentum when they hit. +/- .001 crap tons.
