GCN Circular 7249
J. R. Cummings for the Swift-BAT team At 08:44:37.44 UT on February 4, BAT triggered on AX J1749.1-2639 (trigger #302454). The source was not identified on board (it is not in the onboard catalog) and was misidentified in the GCN notice as GX 3+1. The spacecraft did not slew, because the source is still in Moon constraint, though it is now out of Sun constraint. AX J1749.1-2639 continues to increase slowly in brightness (see Krimm et al. ATEL #1376) and is now at ~150 milliCrab. The source will be out of Moon constraint for the Swift narrow field instruments on February 5.
