X-Ray Light Curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA on day 171 (June 19) of 1996
J1744_d171_16s_lc image: X-ray light curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA. Bin width of each data is 16 seconds. X-ray light curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA. The source was observed three times on June 19, each of which is #1: 06:40-07:02, #2: 08:16-08:45, and #3: 09:52-10:27 (UT), respectively. Bin #0 of X-axis corresponds to June 19 06:38:55, 1996. Bin width of each data is 16 seconds. This observation was done with 5 PCU's. This light curve includes background counts of roughly 1600-2400 counts/bin.
XTE detected several small bursts and a large burst during these observations, however farther investigation is necessary to tell if the large burst is from GRO J1744-28.
