Discoverya TSdiff = 39 (1) (2)
Excessb 9.3 σ 25.2 σ 17.3 σ

Notes: (a) TeV discovery status.

Source detection significance from excess counts Nexcess detected inside Rout, following Li & Ma (1983).

Likelihood as defined in Eq. 3 used as a measure of whether the fit improvement of the shell (H1) over the Gaussian (H0) is due to fluctuations, using the Akaike Information Criterion.

Shell fit results; (l0 , b0) are the center coordinates, Rin and Rout are the inner and outer radii of the homogeneously emitting spherical shell, respectively.
