Final report for on task (SP) entitled "X-ray flare characteristics in lambda Eridani" X-Ray Flare Characteristics in lambda Eridani. By Myron A. Smith. Abstract. The X-ray component consisted of observations from both the ASCA and ROSAT satellites Topics: Space Radiation. Year: OAI identifier: oai:   X-ray flaring from ROSAT observations in The X-ray component consisted of observations from both ROSAT (subject of this task) and ASCA satellites. The flare event observed by ROSAT caught the astronomical hot star community by surprise because X-ray flares have not been observed from other single B-type stars, before or :// A giant X-ray flare on Lambda Eridani (B2e) Authors: Smith, Myron A.; , can be fitted well to a Raymond-Smith temperature parameter of 14 MK and luminosity 4 x 10 exp 31 ergs/s; these are characteristics of giant stellar flares. With an estimated duration of ab s, this event is arguably the strongest X-ray flare yet observed LS.
