GOMEZ, Yolanda e RODRIGUEZ, Luis F.. A VLA Archive Observation of the Youngest Known Galactic Supernova Remnant G1.9+0.3. Rev. mex. astron. astrofis [online]. 2009, vol.45, n.1, pp. 91-94. ISSN 0185-1101.
We present the analysis of an unpublished VLA archive observation made at 1.49 GHz in 1989 toward the supernova remnant G1.9+0.3, the youngest such Galactic object known. This observation agrees with the time evolution in angular size previously reported. We derive an expansion rate of 0.46 ± 0.11% per year and an age of 220 yr for the remnant by comparing the 1985 and 1989 images.
