A 5.5-year Fermi LAT gamma-ray observation shows significant extended emission at the position of the supernova remnant HB9 (G160.9+2.6). The significance of the detection above the background for photon energies above 0.2 GeV is 16$\sigma$. The gamma-ray flux above 0.2 GeV is (2.23E-8) photons/cm$^2$ s, and the corresponding luminosity above 1 GeV is 1.4E33 erg/s (for a source distance of 1 kpc). The spectrum of the source is best described by a curved power-law (log-parabola). The gamma-ray…
