Color Skymap of 2704 BATSE GRBs

Enlarge Image

This map shows the locations of a total of 2704 Gamma-Ray Bursts recorded with the Burst and Transient Source Experiment on board NASA's Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory during the nine-year mission.

The projection is in galactic coordinates; the plane of the Milky Way Galaxy is along the horizontal line at the middle of the figure. The burst locations are color-coded based on the fluence, which is the energy flux of the burst integrated over the total duration of the event. Long duration, bright bursts appear in red, and short duration, weak bursts appear in purple. Grey is used for bursts for which the fluence cannot be calculated due to incomplete data.
