Source Notes:
Discovery
From Mirzoyan et al. (2014):
- "The source has been detected by Fermi-LAT, in the Second Fermi-LAT
source Catalogue ... It also belongs to the first Fermi-LAT catalog of
>10 GeV sources, showing a hard (photon index = 1.4 +- 0.4) and bright
(photon flux = 9.6e-11 ph cm^-2 s^-1) emission above 10 GeV, and
identified as a good candidate for VHE detection."

Variability
From Mirzoyan et al. (2014):
- "Data taken between 2014 Jan 1 and Jan 8 (about 10 hours) yields a
source detection with a statistical significance of more than 5
standard deviations. The non-detection in the earlier data taken in
2013 Dec. suggests VHE flux variability."
