- This detection was announced in July 2012 at the Gamma 2012
Heidelberg by Mazin (presentation).
Source position and its uncertainty:
- The source position is taken from NED
- R.A. (J2000): 01 36 32.5
- Dec. (J2000): +39 06 00
- No information on the positional uncertainty is available.
The redshift of this object is unknown
From Paiano et al.
"We found our high signal-to-noise ratio (∼ 200-480) optical spectrum
completely featureless, only allowing to set a lower limit to the
redshift of z > 0.27."
From Nilsson et al.
- an upper limit of z>0.4 has been set by based on the non-detection
of the host galaxy
