IGR J11014-6103 (also known as the Lighthouse Nebula) is composed of a bow-shock pulsar wind nebula (PWN) and large-scale X-ray jet-like features, all powered by PSR J1101-6101. Previous observations suggest that the jet features stem from a ballistic jet of relativistic particles. In order to confirm the nature of the jet and the counter-jet, we obtained a new deep 250 ks Chandra observation of the Lighthouse Nebula. We performed detailed spatial and spectral analysis of all X-ray components… 

Jet-like structures from PSR J1135–6055

Pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe) produced from supersonic runaway pulsars can render extended X-ray structures in the form of tails and prominent jets. In this Letter we report on the analysis of $\sim$130

Chandra Monitoring of the J1809–1917 Pulsar Wind Nebula and Its Field

PSR J1809–1917 is a young (τ = 51 kyr) and energetic ( erg s−1) radio pulsar powering an X-ray pulsar wind nebula (PWN) that exhibits morphological variability. We report on the results of a new

CHANDRA OBSERVATIONS OF OUTFLOWS FROM PSR J1509–5850

PSR J1509–5850 is a middle-aged pulsar with a period of P ≈ 89 ms and spin-down power of erg s−1, at a distance of about 3.8 kpc. We report on deep Chandra X-ray Observatory observations of this

The Long Filament of PSR J2030+4415

New X-ray and optical observations shed light on the remarkable X-ray filament of the gamma-ray pulsar PSR J2030+4415. Images of the associated Hα bow shock’s evolution over the past decade compared

The two tails of PSR J2055+2539 as seen by Chandra: Analysis of the nebular morphology and pulsar proper motion

We analyzed two Chandra observations of PSR J2055+2539 for a total integration time of ∼130 ks to measure the proper motion and study the two elongated nebular features of this source. We did not

Kinetic ‘jets’ from fast-moving pulsars

Some fast-moving pulsars, such as the Guitar and the Lighthouse, exhibit asymmetric non-thermal emission features that extend well beyond their ram pressure confined pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe). Based

PSR J2030+4415’s Remarkable Bow Shock, PWN, and Filament

We report on new X-ray and optical observations of PSR J2030+4415, a gamma-ray pulsar with an Hα bow shock. These data reveal the velocity structure of the bow shock apex and resolve unusual X-ray

Signatures of extended radio emission from escaping electrons in the Lighthouse Nebula

Several supersonic runaway pulsar wind nebulae (sPWNe) with jet-like extended structures have been recently discovered in X-rays. If these structures are the product of electrons escaping the system

On the nature of radio filaments near the Galactic Center

We suggest that narrow, long radio filaments near the Galactic Center arise as kinetic jets - streams of high energy particles escaping from ram-pressure confined pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe). The

XMM–Newton observations of a gamma-ray pulsar J0633+0632: pulsations, cooling and large-scale emission

We report results of XMM–Newton observations of a γ-ray pulsar J0633+0632 and its wind nebula. We reveal, for the first time, pulsations of the pulsar X-ray emission with a single sinusoidal pulse
