I maintain a "master" list of cosmic, SGR, and solar events which have been observed by the 29 spacecraft which have participated in the IPN since 1990. The full list contains information on over 20,000 events. Data can be extracted from it on various types of bursts. The links below list the observations of confirmed and unconfirmed cosmic and SGR, and confirmed solar gamma-ray bursts since the GRB experiment aboard Ulysses was turned on in November 1990. I update the list about once a month, but I do not post every update to this web site. Lists can also be generated for bursts observed by certain satellites between certain dates, etc. Please contact
for more information, or visit the HEASARC to use their interactive version.
Cosmic Burst List
SGR Burst List
Solar Burst List
Possible SGR Burst List (bursts which are thought to be due to SGRs due to their time histories and/or energy spectra, but cannot be localized)
Unconfirmed Cosmic Burst List. Use this list with caution. An event can be put into the "unconfirmed" category for a number of reasons, such as:
- it may be a weak GRB observed by only one experiment, and below the thresholds of the other instruments in the network,
- it may be a real GRB observed by only one experiment, and not detected by any other experiment because of operational constraints (experiments
were off, burst was occulted by a planet, not observed because of a data gap or high background)
- it may be cosmic, but not a GRB: it could be a giant flare from Cygnus X-1, or an SGR burst
- it may not be cosmic at all; particle events, solar flares, TGFs, etc. can masquerade as bursts.
If you are interested in a particular event, it may be possible to resolve its nature with further investigation.
