1 Otero, Sebastian Alberto Microquasar.
2 GCVS Team Cyg X-3. Peculiar infrared X-ray source. V > 23m. Flare radio source. In the K band short and slow flares on the time scale about 2 minutes and 1-2 hours, irregular variations and longperiodic variability are observed [E.E.Becklin, F.J.Hawkins, K.O. Mason, K.Matthews, G.Neugebauer, D.Packman, P.W.Sanford, B.Schupler, A.Stark, C.G.Wynn- Williams, ApJ 192, L 119, 1974.]. These variations are accompanied by periodical oscillations of infrared, X-ray and gamma radiation with the elements: Min = 2440949.8986 + 0.1996830d*E + 1.25d*10**(-10)*E**2 [M. van der Klis, J.M.Bonnet-Bidaud, AsAp 95, L5, 1981.]. Usually the amplitude of these variations A(K) = 0.5m, but sometimes they disappear completely.
