We report on the investigation of a very high-energy, Galactic γ-ray source recently discovered at >50 GeV using the Large Area Telescope on board Fermi. This object, 2FHL J0826.1−4500, displays one of the hardest >50 GeV spectra (photon index Γγ ∼ 1.6) in the 2FHL catalog, and a follow-up observation with XMM-Newton has uncovered diffuse, soft thermal emission at the position of the γ-ray source. A detailed analysis of the available multi-wavelength data shows that this source is located on…
