Source Notes:
Source Discovery:
- This detection was announced in July 2012 at the Gamma 2012 meeting in
Heidelberg by Mazin (presentation).

Source position and its uncertainty:
- The source position is taken from NED (RGB J0136+391)
- R.A. (J2000): 01 36 32.5
- Dec. (J2000): +39 06 00
- No information on the positional uncertainty is available.

Distance:
The redshift of this object is unknown
From Paiano et al. (2016):
"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. (2012):
- an upper limit of z>0.4 has been set by based on the non-detection
of the host galaxy
