Abstract

Analysis of underground muon events from the direction of Cygnus X-3 shows evidence for large time variability of the flux in addition to the 4.8-h modulation. Our data support earlier suggestions that high fluxes occur with a 34.1-d cycle. Events measured during high-rate periods show increased statistical support for the hypothesis linking underground muons with this x-ray binary.
