 Abstract: On August 14, 2017 at 10 ∶ 30:43 UTC, the Advanced Virgo detector and the two Advanced LIGO detectors coherently observed a transient gravitational-wave signal produced by the coalescence of two stellar mass black holes, with a false-alarm rate of ≲ 1 in 27 000 years. The signal was observed with a three-detector network matched-filter signal-to-noise ratio of 18. The inferred masses of the initial black holes are 30 . 5 þ 5 . 7 − 3 . 0 M ⊙ and 25 : 3 þ 2 . 8 − 4 . 2 M ⊙ (at the 90% credible level). The luminosity distance of the source is 540 þ 130 − 210 Mpc, corresponding to a redshift of z ¼ 0 . 11 þ 0 . 03 − 0 . 04 . A network of three detectors improves the sky localization of the source, reducing the area of the 90% credible region from 1160 deg 2 using only the two LIGO detectors to 60 deg 2 using all three detectors. For the first time, we can test the nature of gravitational-wave polarizations from the antenna response of the LIGO-Virgo network, thus enabling a new class of phenomenological tests of gravity.
