Description We request MAGIC observations to provide sensitive VHE coverage for the multi-instrument campaigns in 2019-2020. These MAGIC observations are needed to characterise with accuracy the high-energy bump and its temporal evolution with simultaneous coverage for the low-energy bump, and will play an uniquely important role in the investigation of several important scientific questions, like the processes generating the flux variability, as well as to address whether the blazar emission is produced in a single or in multiple zones. These multi-year VHE data, together with its related MW data (which includes XMM observations for three nights in Cycle 14), will become one of the MAGIC legacy products that will be used by many scientists inside-outside our collaboration.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
