Abstract
We have observed underground cosmic-ray muons, corresponding to a secondary flux of approx.7 x 10/sup -11/ cm/sup -2/ s/sup -1/, at a depth of 1800-m water equivalent, which appear to be initiated by Cygnus X-3. This identification is based on both direction and phase coherence. The existence of such secondary muons conflicts with the current understanding of photon cascades and/or the nature and location of Cygnus X-3.
