    Description: Laser heterodyne observations of submillimeter emissions from carbon monoxide in the Orion molecular cloud are reported. High frequency and spatial resolution observations were made at the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility on Mauna Kea by the use of an optically pumped laser local oscillator and quasi-optical Schottky diode mixer for heterodyne detection of the J = 6 - 5 rotational transition of CO at 434 microns. Spectral analysis of the 434-micron emission indicates that the emitting gas is optically thin and is at a temperature above 180 K. Results thus demonstrate the potential contributions of ground-based high-resolution submillimeter astronomy to the study of active regions in interstellar molecular clouds.

    Description: A submillimeter heterodyne radiometer, developed for astronomical applications, uses an optically pumped laser local oscillator and a quasi-optical Schottky diode mixer. The resultant telescope-mounted system, which has a noise temperature less than 4000 K (double sideband) and high frequency and spatial resolution, has been used to detect the J = 6 to 5 rotational transition of carbon monoxide at 434 micrometers in the Orion molecular clouds. The measurements, when compared with previous millimeter-wave data, indicate that the broad carbon monoxide emission feature is produced by an optically thin gas whose temperature exceeds 180 K.

    Description: Visual and far red surface photometry were obtained of two X-ray emitting BL Lacertae objects, 1218+304 (2A1219+305) and 1727+50 (Izw 187), as well as the highly variable object 1219+28 (ON 231, W Com). The intensity distribution for 1727+50 can be modeled using a central point source plus a de Vaucouleurs intensity law for an underlying galaxy. The broad band spectral energy distribution so derived is consistent with what is expected for an elliptical galaxy. The spectral index of the point source is alpha = 0.97. Additional VLBI and X-ray data are also reported for 1727+50. There is nebulosity associated with the recently discovered object 1218+304. No nebulosity is found associated with 1219+28. A comparison of the results with observations at X-ray and radio frequencies suggests that all the emission from 1727+50 and 1218+304 can be interpreted as due solely to direct synchrotron emission. If this is the case, the data further imply the existence of relativistic motion effects and continuous particle injection.

    Description: The Nov. 19, 1978 gamma-ray burst (GRB) has a very well determined error box, 10 square arcmin (Cline et al., 1981). An 8000-sec IPC exposure with the Einstein Observatory detected, at a 3.4-sigma level, one low intensity (less than 3 x 10 to the -13th erg/sq cm per sec) X-ray source inside the error box. The probability of a serendipitous detection was 0.01. Inside the X-ray source error box there are two weak radio sources, one of them highly polarized (Hjellming and Ewald, 1981), and two 20-magnitude objects, not coincident with the radio sources visible in the ESO/SRC J and R plates. With the exception of N49, this is the first possible detection of X-ray emission inside a GRB box. Its low intensity justifies, in fact, the lack of detection for other events.

    Description: A high-resolution long-wavelength IUE spectrum of the G0-G5Ia supergiant HR 8752 and its B main sequence companion is discussed. The supergiant, which dominates for wavelengths greater than approximately 2700 A, appears to have a normal spectrum. The spectrum of the B star contains several deep asymmetric absorption lines. It is argued that these lines are interstellar and not circumstellar in origin.

    Description: Burns and Owen's sample of 25 4C radio sources which coincide with Zwicky clusters of galaxies has been searched for X-ray emission using the HEAO 1 A-2 experiment. X-ray emission was detected from five sources at the 3sigma level, two of which exceeded 5sigma. Positions and 90% X-ray error boxes are given for each of the five sources detected. The clusters surveyed are non-Abell clusters which would generally not be expected to be detectable with the A-2 experiment. The search for X-ray emission was prompted by the knowledge of the existence of extended radio sources in the clusters. The relaxed structure of these sources implies the presence of a relatively dense intracluster medium which is expected to produce thermal bremsstrahlung X-ray emission.

    Description: It is estimated on statistical grounds that of the 97 sources detected in a survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) by means of the Einstein Laboratory's imaging X-ray telescope, less than 25 are likely to be either foreground stars or background quasars. The largest class of identified sources discovered is that of supernova remnants (SNRs). It is confirmed by means of high resolution maps that six more sources are also SNRs, and an additional 20 to 25 unidentified sources are suspected, in light of the available temporal, spatial and spectral information, to be SNRs. Of the remaining approximately 40 sources, about half are expected to be either background active galactic nuclei or foreground stars. The unexpectedly large number of SNRs found in the survey suggests that present knowledge of the galactic remnant population may be incomplete.

    Description: The celestial source location of the November 19, 1978, intense gamma ray burst has been determined from data obtained with the interplanetary gamma-ray sensor network by means of long-baseline wave front timing instruments. Each of the instruments was designed for studying events with observable spectra of approximately greater than 100 keV, and each provides accurate event profile timing in the several millisecond range. The data analysis includes the following: the triangulated region is centered at (gamma, delta) 1950 = (1h16m32s, -28 deg 53 arcmin), at -84 deg galactic latitude, where the star density is very low and the obscuration negligible. The gamma-ray burst source region, consistent with that of a highly polarized radio source described by Hjellming and Ewald (1981), may assist in the source modeling and may facilitate the understanding of the source process. A marginally identifiable X-ray source was also found by an Einstein Observatory investigation. It is concluded that the burst contains redshifted positron annihilation and nuclear first-excited iron lines, which is consistent with a neutron star origin.

    Description: The bright infrared sources W51-IRS2 has at least three components with different physical and evolutionary properties. The spatial distribution and the near infrared spectra of the components in IRS2 are remarkably similar to, but more luminous than those found in Orion, where an H2 region of comparable linear size is also located close to a cluster of compact infrared sources. The characteristics of the nearby W51-NORTH H2O maser source, and the detection of 2 micro m H2 quadrupole emission in IRS2 indicate that the mass loss phenomena found in Orion-KL also exist in W51.

    Description: A Sgr B2 kinetic temperature of about 47 K is derived based on observations of K components of the 9K-8K transition of CH3CCH. Interstellar line emission is detected in the 2 mm wavelength region from SO, (S-34)O, SO2, CH3OH, CH3CCH, CH3CH2CN, HC3N, and nine unidentified transitions. The methylacetylene K component data combined with the derived data reduction technique, demonstrates the utility of the molecule as a temperature probe of molecular clouds when two or more rotational transitions are observed. Evidence for the existence of interstellar HNO is presented, and an attempt is made to detect sulfuric acid, formic anhydride, and the 0-18 isotopic for CO2 in interstellar clouds and in the Venusian atmosphere during inferior conjunction.
