Abstract: We present new BATSE Earth occultation observations of the 25 keV-1.8 MeV spectrum and variability of Cygnus X-1 made between August 1993 and May 1994. We observed that the normal soft gamma-ray spectrum (gamma2) of Cygnus X-1 has two components: a Comptonized part seen below 30keV, and a high-energy tail in the 0.3-2 MeV range.
