Long-term gamma-ray observations of the binary HESS J0632+057 with H.E.S.S., MAGIC and VERITAS
2019 July 22
The gamma-ray binary HESS J0632+057 has been observed at very-high energies (E $>$ 100 GeV) for more than ten years by the major systems of imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. We present a summary of results obtained with the H.E.S.S., MAGIC, and VERITAS experiments based on roughly 440 h of observations in total. This includes a discussion of an unusually bright TeV outburst of HESS J0632+057 in January 2018. The updated gamma-ray light curve now covers all phases of the orbital period with significant detections in almost all orbital phases. Results are discussed in context with simultaneous observations with the X-ray Telescope onboard the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory.
