Abstract

THREE sightings of the faint X-ray source 3U0405 + 10 with the Ariel V sky survey instrument have produced an improved position, with the error box now containing Abell 478. This distance class 6 Abell cluster is the most distant X-ray source yet detected. It has a (2–20 keV) X-ray luminosity of (5.4±1.1) × 1045 erg s−1.
