Fermi LAT Weekly report N. 305

Covered period: 2014.Apr.7 - 2014.Apr.13
LAT Mission week:305.57 - 306.57

  • OP 313 underwent a strong outburst; the source reached a peak daily flux of 1.1 ± 0.2 on April 12 as reported in ATel#6068.
  • A non-2FGL gamma-ray source associated with PKS 1824-58 (ATel#6067) was detected on April 11 at a daily flux of 0.8 ± 0.2.
  • 3C 279 showed a slow decreasing activity after the strong outburst observed the previous week. The daily averaged flux was  4.8±0.6 on April 7 and decreased to about 0.6 in the last days of the week.
  • 3C 454.3 was observed almost all days of the week; the highest flux was recorded on April 8 when the FSRQ flux reached the daily value of 3.5 ± 0.7. 
  • S5 0716+71 and PKS B1424–418 detected throughout the week with an average daily flux of 0.4 and 0.7, respectively.
  • Further bright blazars detected in some days of the week with a daily flux in the range 0.4-0.8: TXS 1530-131, PKS 1510–08, Mkn 421.
  • Other blazars and AGNs of the week: PKS 0426-380, S5 1044+71, PG 1553+113, B3 1343+451NGC 1275.
Fluxes are in the unit of 10-6 photons/cm^2/s above 100 MeV. All uncertainties 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.
