This image is from TeVCat , an online, interactive catalog for very-high-energy (VHE; E > 50 GeV) gamma-ray astronomy developed by our very own Deirdre Horan and Scott Wakely. As VHE astronomy continues to grow, the usefulness of a one-stop clearing house for information on new sources is increasingly evident. TeVCat is intended to be such a resource. With sky maps, scientific information, visibility plotters and linked references, it will help the wider gamma-ray community stay up-to-date and informed on this exciting and rapidly developing field.  You can find TeVCat at http://tevcat.uchicago.edu .
