Miscellaneous :
Tomsick et al. 2012 (ApJ):
  • Chandra refinement of the position
  • Source in 2MASS and GLIMPSE catalogues J=14.701, H=13.749, Ks=14.183, m4.5=12.877
  • IR SED consistent with (but not only) simple black body
  • Chandra spectrum => NH=3.8 x 1022 cm-2, Γ=0.67, extrapolation consistent with IBIS flux
  • Source suspected to be galactic
