Session 76 - Exploding Stars.
Display session, Thursday, June 13
The super-soft X-ray source RXJ0537.6-7033 was observed with the ROSAT PSPC in four occasions in 1992 and 1993 and it was found to be a weak, variable X-ray source with a super--soft spectrum. Optical observations suggest the identification with a variable optical star with the line of He II at 4686 Å\ in emission. The line is redshifted by about 4 Å\, suggesting the LMC membership. The evidence suggests that it is another "CAL 87--type'' source.
