Abstract
The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) gamma-ray observatory is carrying out a detailed survey of the northern sky at TeV energies. 2HWC J2006+341 is a newly discovered source reported by the point source search in the 2HWC HAWC Observatory Gamma Ray Catalog. Using $\sim$1038 days of HAWC data we carried out a detailed analysis of the region revealing extended emission. No emission has been detected by other TeV instruments at the location of 2HWC J2006+341. We also analyzed publicly available data from the Ferm}-LAT that show for the first time the existence of an extended GeV source with a hard spectrum in the region of 2HWC J2006+341. Combined modeling of the data from HAWC and the Fermi-LAT allowed us to explore different scenarios for the origin of 2HWC J2006+341.
