With 8 hours of observations, VERITAS confirms the detection of two very high energy gamma-ray sources. The gamma-ray binary LS 5039 is detected with a statistical significance of 8.8σ. The measured flux above 1 TeV is(2.5±0.4)×10−12cm−2s−1 near inferior conjunction and (7.8±2.8)×10−13cm−2s−1 near superior conjunction. The pulsar wind nebula HESS J1825-137 is detected with a statistical significance of 6.7σ and a measured flux above 1 TeV of (3.9±0.8)×10−12cm−2s−1.
