Source Notes:

This source was moved to the Default Catalogue on 191118.
This detection was announced on 140115:
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."

Source Position:
The position reported here is taken from NED:
The reference given in NED is the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 6 as obtained Sep. 17, 2007.
- R.A. (J2000): 08h 47m 12.931s
- Dec. (J2000): +11d 33' 50.25''

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."

Spectral Properties:
From MAGIC Collaboration (2019):
The data were fit with a simple power-law spectrum of the form:
- dN/dE = F0 x (E/E0)^-A
- F0: 10.0 +/- 2.0 x10e-12 cm-2 s-1
- A: 3.6 +/- 0.8
- E0: 300 GeV
The integral flux above 200 GeV is 2.6 +/- 0.5 x10e-12 cm-2 s-1

From MAGIC Collaboration (2019):
- a redshift of z=0.198 is quoted and referenced to come from Ahn et al. (2012)
