Many sources of gravitational waves also have a bright electromagnetic signature.  If the gravitational wave detectors can make a detection, the correlations with the electromagnetic spectrum will give us additional information on the nature of the source. In this talk I will discuss possible electromagnetic counterparts for supermassive binary black hole collisions, which can be detected by LISA, the prospect space detector.
