Fermi LAT weekly report N. 93

Covered period: 2010.Mar.15 - 2010.Mar.21

LAT Mission week: 93.57 - 94.57

  • PKS 0537-441 was getting brighter at the end of the week. Its weekly average flux was (0.9 ±0.1)*10^-6. Previous gamma-ray activity was reported in ATels #2454, #2124, #1759.

  • PKS 1510-08 was observed at the end of the week peaking at (3.0 ±0.6)*10^-6 on the 20th of March.

  • 4C +21.35 was detected above 0.7*10^-6 throughout the week.

  • PKS 0727-11 was observed in a high state with a weekly average flux of (0.9 ±0.1)*10^-6.

  • PKS 0402-362 was detected on the 15th of March with a flux of (2.0 ±0.4)*10^-6. Its weekly average flux was (0.7 ±0.1)*10^-6.

  • 3C 273 remained bright throughout the week with an average flux of (2.2 ±0.2)*10^-6.

  • 3C 454.3 remained bright throughout the week as well, with an average flux of (2.6 ±0.2)*10^-6 .

  • Fermi J2102+4542 probably associated with the symbiotic nova V407 Cyg (ATel #2487). Average weekly flux=(0.5 ±0.1)*10^-6. You can read more about the current exceptional outburst of V407 Cyg on Universe Today.

Fluxes are in the unit of photons/cm2/s above 100 MeV. All errors are statistical only.

Note. All the fluxes reported above are from 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.
