Observations of SNR G24.7+0.6 with the MAGIC Telescopes



Primary authors


Abstract content

SNR G24.7+0.6 is a 9.5 kyrs radio and GeV gamma-ray supernova remnant (SNR) evolving in a dense medium. In the GeV regime, SNR G24.7+0.5 shows a hard spectral index which which if extended to very high energies should be easily detected by current Cherenkov telescopes. We observed the field of view of SNR G24.7+0.6 with the MAGIC telescopes. The region shows a complex environment, displaying different structures in the TeV regime. Applying morphological and spectral analysis techniques, we distinguished three different regions of very-high energy gamma-rays. The results will be discussed in the context of origin of these gamma-ray accelerators.
