Abstract: The formation of the collapsing star magnetosphere are considered. When the star is compressed under the collapse, the magnetic field in the magnetosphere considerably increases. The charged particles will be accelerated in this field. These particles will be generated radiation moving in this magnetic fields. The radiation flux grows during stellar collapse in millions times and can be observed in the form of an impulse with duration equal to the stellar collapse time. This flux depend on the distance to the star, its magnetic field, and the particle spectrum in the magnetosphere. The radiation fluxes are calculated for various collapsing stars with the initial dipole magnetic fields and the initial power-series, relativistic Maxwell, and Bolzmann particles distributions in the magnetosphere. This radiation can be observed by means of modern instruments.
