The unidentified TeV source in Cygnus is now confirmed by follow-up observations from 2002 with the HEGRA stereoscopic system of Cherenkov Telescopes. Using all data (1999 to 2002) we confirm this new source as steady in flux over the four years of data taking, extended with radius 6.2′ (±1.2′stat ±0.9 ′ sys) and exhibiting a hard spectrum with photon index −1.9. It is located in the direction of the dense OB stellar association, Cygnus OB2. Its integral flux above energies E > 1 TeV amounts to… CONTINUE READING
