We report the first measurement of proper motions in the SN 1006 remnant (G327.6+14.6) based entirely on digital images. CCD images from three epochs spanning a period of 11 yr are used: 1987 from Las Campanas and 1991 and 1998 from Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory. The filaments in SN 1006 are nonradiative, appearing only in the Balmer lines of hydrogen. Delicate filaments—probably thin sheets seen in projection—delineate the shock front along the northwestern rim of the remnant. We use…

We introduce a deep (670 ks) X-ray survey of the entire SN 1006 remnant from the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, together with a deep Hα image of SN 1006 from the 4 m Blanco telescope at CTIO. Comparison
The Preshock Gas of SN 1006 from Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys Observations
We derive the preshock density and scale length along the line of sight for the collisionless shock from a deep HST image that resolves the Hα filament in SN 1006 and updated model calculations. The
Numerically investigating the morphology of the supernova remnant SN 1006 in the ambient medium with a density discontinuity
Multiband observations on the Type Ia supernova remnant SN 1006 indicate peculiar properties in its morphologies of emission in the radio, optical, and X-ray bands. In the hard X-rays, the remnant

Abstract Optical and UV emission from SN 1006 is observed on the periphery of the SNR, particularly in the NW, and arises as material from interstellar gas is ionized behind the shock front. The
Probing Multiple Sight Lines through the SN 1006 Remnant by Ultraviolet Absorption Spectroscopy
Absorption-line spectroscopy is an effective probe for cold ejecta within a supernova remnant (SNR), provided that suitable background UV sources can be identified. For the SN 1006 remnant we have
ASYMMETRIC EJECTA DISTRIBUTION IN SN 1006
We present the results from deep X-ray observations (∼400 ks in total) of SN 1006 with Suzaku. The thermal spectrum from the entire supernova remnant (SNR) exhibits prominent emission lines of O, Ne,
An Integral View of Balmer-dominated Shocks in Supernova Remnants
Abstract We present integral-field spectroscopic observations with the VIMOS-IFU at the VLT of fast (2000-3000 kms−1) Balmer-dominated shocks surrounding the northwestern rim of the remnant of
The northwestern ejecta knot in SN 1006
Aims. We want to probe the physics of fast collision-less shocks in supernova remnants. We are interested in the non-equilibration of temperatures and particle acceleration. Specifically, we aim to
