Evidence for an Anisotropy in the Cosmic Ray Signal

Article metrics


COSMIC rays are one of the chief constituents of the physical universe but their origins are still not understood. Anisotropies in the cosmic ray signal should provide information toward the solution of these problems. This report presents evidence for an anisotropy in the cosmic rays centred around 0900 h sidereal time and between +30° and +60° declination.
