J1744_d159_1sec_lc image: X-ray light curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA. Bin width of each data is 1 seconds.
X-ray light curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA. The source was observed from June 7 17:35-21:30, 1996 (UT). Bin #0 of X-axis corresponds to June 7 17:52:47, 1996. Bin width of each data is 1 seconds. This observation was done with 5 PCU's. This light curve includes background counts of roughly 100-150 counts/bin.
XTE detected six bursts during the observation of GRO J1744-28, including small one.

    Power Spectrum of GRO J1744-28 on day 159 (June 7, 1996)
    Power spectrum of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA on day 159 (June 7, 1996). This power spectrum is an ensemble average of 68 spectra, each of which are calculated from 128 seconds continuous data in 0.125 second bin. X-axis represents wave number (WN). Frequency of each WN is given as WN/128 (Hz). Peak at WN=274 (2.14Hz) corresponds to the coherent pulsation.
