Those energies indicate an electron-positron pair annililated each other. Positrons are anti-electrons, i.e., antimatter.

This is an *outstanding* video by the Flint River Astronomy Club, hosted by Philip Sacco. The astrophotography is beautiful. The content is well done. Also, the observatory that appears in most of the video is actually the observatory at the Fernbank Science Center in Decatur.

You may be interested to note the time will be 11:11:11 in a few minutes.
In fact, if you have a precise clock, the time will actually pass through 11:11:11.1111... at 1/9 second past.
I think today's date is Sat 2011-01-01. Granted, there are still a lot of ones!
