Rossi X-ray timing explorer all-sky monitor localization of Sgr 1627-41.


Abstract (from CDS):

The fourth unambiguously identified soft gamma repeater (SGR), SGR 1627-41, was discovered with the BATSE instrument on 1998 June 15. Interplanetary Network (IPN) measurements and BATSE data constrained the location of this new SGR to a 6° segment of a narrow (19") annulus. We present two bursts from this source observed by the All-Sky Monitor (ASM) on the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer. We use the ASM data to further constrain the source location to a 5' long segment of the BATSE/IPN error box. The ASM/IPN error box lies within 0'.3 of the supernova remnant G337.0-0.1. The probability that a supernova remnant would fall so close to the error box purely by chance is ∼5%.
