Covered period: 2016 December 12-18
LAT Mission week: 445.57-446.57
- CTA 102 detected all week in outburst state with daily fluxes above 5.0e-6. The source was above 10.0e-6 on at least three days, from Dec. 14 to Dec. 16 ((see more details in Fermi LAT ATel#9869 and GCN/FERMI NOTICE #1481817437). The peak daily flux was observed on Dec. 16: (15.8+/-0.3)e-6 with corresponding photon index 1.9+/-0.1. One Fermi ToO pointing to CTA 102 was performed following this very high-flux state and a second one is ongoing.
- 3C 454.3 detected all week with daily fluxes between about 1.0e-6 and 3.3e-6.
- PKS 2247-131 detected all week with daily fluxes between about 0.7e-6 and 1.5e-6 (see GCN/FERMI NOTICE #1482077947).
- 4C +28.07 (B2 0234+28, OD 258) detected in flaring state on Dec. 16 and 17 with daily flux about 1.0e-6.
- MG2 J071354+1934 detected in flaring state on Dec. 15 with daily flux about 0.9e-6 (see GCN/FERMI NOTICE #1481903722).
- S5 1044+71 detected all week with daily fluxes between about 0.5e-6 and 0.8e-6.
- S3 0218+35 (gravitationally lensed) detected in high state on Dec. 16 with daily flux about 0.8e-6.
- S5 1053+70 detected in high state on Dec. 16 with daily flux about 0.8e-6.

- PKS 1502+106 detected all week with daily fluxes between about 0.5e-6 and 0.7e-6.
- NGC 1275 (Per A, 3C 84) detected all week with daily fluxes between about 0.5e-6 and 0.7e-6.
- Other blazars of the day (daily flux around or below 0.5e-6):

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.
