NICER observation list: Target ID 259802

Abstract

We propose a yearly monitoring campaign of six magnetars, including, for the first time, a low luminosity magnetar, SGR 0501+4516. This campaign will identify the level of timing noise exhibited by these sources, establish their spin-up glitch rate, identify spin down glitch events, and reveal their burst and outburst activity. In the process, we will also refine our knowledge on magnetars variability and the correlations between the flux and temporal properties in quiescence and in outburst. The addition of SGR 0501+4516 represents a crucial step towards sampling a diverse population of magnetars, and will allow us to establish, for the first time, the long term timing properties of an ``outlier'', and compare it to the other bright, highly monitored sources.
