VERITAS congratulates the HAWC (High-Altitude Water Cherenkov) Collaboration on the recent inauguration of the detector.


New: 16-May-2015: VERITAS detects VHE emission from the low-synchrotron-peaked BL Lac S3 1227+25. See "News" above...


New: quick link to our results pages (one page per paper, with descriptive text and all figures).

VERITAS (Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System) is a ground-based gamma-ray instrument operating at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory (FLWO) in southern Arizona, USA. It is an array of four 12m optical reflectors for gamma-ray astronomy in the GeV - TeV energy range. These imaging Cherenkov telescopes are deployed such that they have the highest sensitivity in the VHE energy band (50 GeV - 50 TeV), with maximum sensitivity from 100 GeV to 10 TeV. This VHE observatory effectively complements the NASA Fermi mission.
