Description We propose to observe for 40 ks in AO3 the bright Seyfert 1 galaxy MCG~+8-11-11, probably the brightest Seyfert 1s not yet observed by XMM-- Newton . The main goal of the proposal is to study in detail the properties of the iron line(s) in this source, properties that previous missions left largely undetermined. XMM-- Newton observations of Seyfert 1s indicate that the iron line properties are often complex and may be different from source to source: the proposed observation will add one more case to the handful of Seyfert 1s adequately studied.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
