INTEGRAL Galactic Bulge Monitoring Program

Project Details

Description

The Galactic Bulge is a region rich in bright variable high-energy X-ray and gamma-ray sources. Since 2005, we have observed this region regularly during all the visibility periods with ESA's high energy astrophysics observatory INTEGRAL . Complete hexagonal dither patterns (7 pointings of 1800 sec each) are performed during each INTEGRAL revolution (i.e. every 3 days). As a service to the scientific community, the IBIS/ISGRI and JEM-X light curves and sky images in two energy bands are made publicly available as soon as the observations are performed.
