Description of source "g24" from Chambers et al. (2011)


Green source g24 shows a clear enhancement at 4.5 µm, but its emission at this wavelength is relatively faint (Figure 24). It displays no corresponding 24 µm emission and no CH3OH maser emission. This source is located within an IRDC, adjacent to a region of bright 8 µm emission. It has a mass of 6.3 ± 2.5 M_0 and is likely located foreground to the Galactic center.
