Sax J1810.8-2609: a New Hard X-ray Bursting Transient


The transient X-ray source SAX J1810.8-2609 was discovered on 1998, March 10 with the Wide Field Cameras on board the BeppoSAX satellite, while observing the Galactic Bulge in the 2-28 keV energy range. On March 11, a strong type-I X-ray burst was detected with evidence of photospheric radius expansion. A follow-up target of opportunity observation with the… (More)
