Radio emission of stars in the Monoceros constellation


In the present paper, the optical identifications of the bright stars from the Monoceros constellation with strong radio sources have been suggested. The Monoceros constellation is projected on the bright region of the Milky Way, where the densities of the stars and gas are rather high. 17 stars brighter than 11m are located within the one square degree plate under investigation. All these stars were identified with radio sources from NVSS survey of NRAO observatory. Considerable radio refraction was revealed in the interstellar medium. It was found that twelve stars among seventeen ones exhibited radio emission characterized by non-thermal spectrum.
