Covered period: 2015 April 6 - 12
LAT Mission week: 357.57 - 358.57
- Flare of the optically-selected and polarized BL Lac object SDSS J084411.67+531250.7 (NVSS J084411+531250, BZB J0844+5312, 3FGL J0843.9+5311) on April 6 with daily averaged flux of 0.3e-6, about 50 times the averaged flux reported in the 3FGL catalog. A high-urgency ToO observation by Swift showed a X-ray and optical-UV spectral energy distribution brightening of a factor of about 5 with respect to archival observations. This correlated flaring activity observed by Fermi and Swift confirms the identification of 3FGL J0843.9+5311 (2FGL J0843.9+5312) with SDSS J084411.67+531250.7. More details in ATel#7358.
- Flare of the flat spectrum radio quasar PKS 0130-17 (OC -150, TXS 0130-171, 3EG J0130-1758, 3FGL J0132.6-1655, z=1.02) on April 12, with daily averaged flux 1.9e-6, about 35 times greater than the average flux reported in the 3FGL catalog. More details in ATel#7393.

Fluxes are in the unit of 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.
