The RXTE Learning Center List of Sources

This is the list of all the X-ray sources that RXTE has current data on. The table lists all the sources, which type of object they are, their galactic coordinates, the latest flux value, and buttons to lead you to the Real-Time and Definitive data. The name of the object is linked to a "trading card," which will give its "vital statistics." While many of these trading cards are finished, some of them are still under construction.

A glossary of source types is available.
