(Global Microlensing Alert Network)
(collaboration to alert on microlensing transients)

GMAN (for Global Microlensing Alert Network) was a 1990s collaboration including a number telescopes world-wide, transferring images to a central site for automatic detection of gravitational microlensing transients, with automatic notifications to interested parties, presumably to carry out immediate follow-up observations. A goal was the identification of MACHOs.
