Extract

Cen X-3 was first discovered by Chodil et al. Since then, observations using the UHURU satellite have shown it to be an X-ray pulsar, and it must now have become one of the most searched for objects in the sky. It is both an X-ray pulsar (P~4.8 secs) and an X-ray eclipsing binary (P~2.08712 days).
