Three sites (:term:`LHO`, :term:`LLO`, :term:`Virgo`) together form a global
network of ground-based GW detectors. The `LIGO Scientific Collaboration
<https://ligo.org/>`_ and the `Virgo Collaboration
<http://public.virgo-gw.eu/the-virgo-collaboration/>`_ jointly analyze the data
in real time to detect and localize transients from compact binary mergers and
other sources. When a signal candidate is found, an alert is sent to
astronomers in order to search for counterparts (electromagnetic waves or
neutrinos).
Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo began their third observing run (O3) on April
