Chandra Observations of the Optically Dark GRB 030528

Abstract

The X-ray-rich GRB 030528 was detected by the HETE satellite and its localization was rapidly disseminated. However, early optical observations failed to detect a counterpart source. In a 2-epoch ToO observation with Chandra, we discovered a fading X-ray source likely counterpart to GRB 030528. The source brightness was typical of X-ray afterglows observed… (More)
