Fermi LAT weekly report N.71

Covered period: 2009.Oct.5 - 2009.Oct.11

  • 3C 454.3 was detected every day in this week with an average flux of 4x10^-6.

  • 3C 273 and 4C 21 were bright in this week. The average fluxes were 2x10^-6 and 1x10^-6, respectively.

  • PKS 1118-05 was detected on Oct. 11. The flux was (0.9+/-0.4)x10^-6, which increased by ~12 compared to the average one during the period August 2008 to July 2009. This source showed an increased gamma-ray activity on Feb. 17, 2009. See ATel#1932.

Fluxes are in the unit of photons/cm^2/s above 100 MeV and quoted errors are statistical only.

Note. All the flux reported above are by the ASP analysis and should be considered preliminary and should not be used for publication, however they are indicative of the flux range and the current status of a source. Source association is done on the basis of source location, considering spatial coincidence only, and it is not indicative of an identification. - Please acknowledge the LAT team if you use information from this report.
