PSR B1259‐63 is a 48 ms radio pulsar in a highly eccentric 3.4 year orbit with a Be star SS 2883. Unpulsedγ-ray, X-ray and radio emission components are observed from the binary system. It is likely that the collision of the pulsar wind wit h the anisotropic wind of the Be star plays a crucial role in the generation of the observed no n-thermal emission. The 2007 periastron passage was observed in unprecedented details with Suzaku, Swift, XMM-Newton and Chandra missions. We present here the…
