We present the results of a Chandra observation of the cooling core cluster Abell 2063. Spectral analysis shows that there is cool gas (2 keV) associated with the cluster core, which is more than a factor of 2 cooler than the outer cluster gas (4.1 keV). There also is spectral evidence for a weak cooling flow, ≈ 20 M☉ yr-1. The cluster exhibits a complex structure in the center that consists of several bright knots of emission, a depression in the emission to the north of the center of the… Expand
