Description We request observing time towards the recently discovered unidentified, variable COMPTEL gamma-ray source. There are three ROSAT sources already detected in this region, but only with 8 photons each, such that spectral analysis of them has not been yet possible. This observation will allow to obtain their spectrum, distinguish between their diffuse or point-like character, and analyze their temporal behavior. This observation will also allow to search for X-ray counterparts of five radio sources detected nearby and uncover any other X-ray emitter lying in the field of view of the EPIC cameras which would be plausibly related with the COMPTEL detection.

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.
