Abstract:

The X-ray source Cygnus X-3 has been interpreted as being a binary system on the basis of extensive X-ray observations of periodic variability. At radio wavelengths, the source displays erratic outbursts. Cyg X-3 has not been detected visually but at infrared wavelengths periodic variations in phase with the X-ray variations have been reported. Infrared, X-ray and radio observations of Cyg X-3 made during 1973 through 1973 October are presented.
