Abstract

Local sources of muon neutrinos are searched for with the Baksan underground scintillation telescope. In the period from December 1978 through May 2017 (live-time 31.05 yr), 1635 neutrino events with zenith angles between 95° and 180° have been detected. No local sources of muon neutrinos with energies over 1 GeV have been found. Upper limits on the fluxes of muon neutrinos emitted by known astrophysical objects are established.
