We present a summary of γ-ray and X-ray observations of the intriguing COS-B field, 2CG 075+00, in order to search for potential counterparts. The third EGRET (3EG) catalog shows that the COS-B emission corresponds to at least two localized γ-ray sources, 3EG 2016+3657 and 3EG J2021+3716. We present analyses of archival X-ray fields which overlap error boxes of both the EGRET sources. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    [sup 44]Ti is one of the few radioactive nuclei produced abundantly in supernovae (SNe). Because its life time is comparable to the typical time between supernovae in the Galaxy, γ-ray lines from [sup 44]Ti provide a powerful tool for the search for optically obscured supernovae that occurred...

    During analysis of sources below the threshold of the third EGRET catalog, we have discovered a source, named GRO J1400-3956 based on the best position, with a remarkably steep spectrum. Archival analysis of COMPTEL data shows that the spectrum must have a strong turn-over in the energy range...

    We report some of the statistical results from our multi-epoch VLBA study of motions in the jets of 42 γ-ray bright blazars. The apparent velocities are high, which agrees with the expectations of inverse Compton models in which the γ rays are more highly beamed than is the radio...
