(gamma ray telescope using Cherenkov radiation)
Milagro was a Cherenkov gamma-ray telescope
telescope at the Fenton Hill Observatory (FHO) in New Mexico
operating from about 1999 to 2008,
looking to record gamma-ray (GR) photons by catching
the resulting Cherenkov radiation in a pond.
It was located at an altitude of 2530 meters
and aimed at GR photons in the TeV range.
