A time varying space–time metric is shown to be a source of electromagnetic radiation even in the absence of charge sources. The post-Newtonian approximation is used as a realistic model of the connection between the space–time metric and a time-varying gravitational potential. Rapid temporal variations in the metric from the coalescence of relativistic stars are shown to be likely progenitors of gamma ray burst and millisecond pulsars.
