  • Accretion conditions and morphologies of X-ray transients containing neutron stars are still poorly understood. Circinus X-1 is an enigmatic case where we observe X-ray flux changes covering four orders of magnitude. We observed Circinus X-1 several times at its very lowest X-ray flux using the high energy transmission grating spectrometer on board the Chandra X-ray Observatory. At a flux of 1.8$\times10^{-11}$ \ergcm we observed a single 1.6 keV blackbody spectrum. The observed continuum… CONTINUE READING
