Abstract

A strong outburst of 6.7 GHz methanol maser occurred in the high-mass young stellar object (HMYSO) G24.33+0.14 between November 2010 and January 2013. The target was observed with the Torun 32 m radio telescope as a part of a long-term monitoring programme. Almost all twelve spectral features from 108 to 120 km s−1 varied synchronously with time delays between the flux minima of about two weeks. This may indicate that the variability is driven by global changes in the pump rate. The flare peaks of the two features with the highest relative amplitude of 40-60 are delayed by about 2.5 months while their profiles undergo essential transformation with a velocity drift of 0.23 km s−1yr−1. This may suggest that the variability is caused by a rapid increase of the pump rate and excitation of a large portion of the HMYSO environment by an accretion event.
