ABSTRACT

HI spectra of the supernova remnant G18.9-1.1 and the supernova remnant candidate G28.6+0.0 are analyzed. We compared the spectra to 13CO emission spectra and to spectra of HII regions in the area to determine kinematic distances. G18.9-1.1 is at 2.1 ± 0.4 kpc and G28.6+0.0 is at 9.0 ± 0.3 kpc from the Sun. Using the published X-ray spectra of G18.9-1.1, we apply supernova remnant models for shocked-ISM temperature and emission measure. We find that G18.9-1.1 has low, but not atypical, explosion energy of ≈3 × 1050 erg and is in a low-density region of the ISM, ~0.1 cm-3. It has age ~3700 yr if the ejecta mass is 1.4 Mʘ, typical of Type Ia SNe, or ~4700 yr if the ejecta mass is 5 Mʘ typical of core-collapse SN. The candidate G28.6+0.0 does not have reported X-ray emission, so we apply a basic Sedov model. The Sedov age is ~600 yr if the ISM density is 1 cm-3 but could be as old as ~6000 yr if the ISM density is as high as 100 cm-3.
