  "abstract": "We have observed underground cosmic-ray muons, corresponding to a secondary flux of \u223c7\u00d710\u221211 cm\u22122 s\u22121, 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.",
