- gamma Rays: There is no catalogued source at this
The X-ray position lies within two CGRO 2B gamma ray burst error circles, but we
estimate that the probability of this happening by chance is 6%.
- Seaches of optical counterparts revealed no obvious
candidate to about V=25 and B,R=24 [3,14].
- There is no radio source, with
limits of 4 mJy at 430 mHZ . J. Lim
observed this position with the VLA, getting upper limits of 48, 40, and
80 microJy at wavelengths of 3.5, 6, and 20 cm, respectively.
There is no near-IR
source obvious on JHK images taken at the CTIO 1.5m.
We estimate K > 17, H > 21, and J > 19. Were the source in
the cloud, reprocessed X-rays/EUV should give a detectable hot spot.
This image is in the H band, and was taken on 21 February 1997.
The 1 sigma upper limit to the flux within the 1 arcsec radius circle,
centered on the position of the X-ray source, corresponds to H=21. The
faintest source visible in this image (lower right) has K=19.6.
