Abstract (from CDS):

We present Ulysses, Konus-Wind, and BATSE observations of bursts from a new soft gamma repeater that was active in 1998 June and July. Triangulation of the bursts results in a ∼1°.8 by 16" error box whose area is ∼7.6 arcmin2 and which contains the Galactic supernova remnant G337.0-0.1. This error box intersects the position of a BeppoSAX X-ray source that is also consistent with the position of G337.0-0.1 and is thought to be the quiescent counterpart to the repeater. If so, the resulting error box is ∼ 2'x16" and has an area of ∼0.6 arcmin2. The error box location within the supernova remnant suggests that the neutron star has a transverse velocity of ∼200-2000 km.s–1.
