The construction and analysis of a whole-sky map using underground muons

Abstract:

A sample of 16 million underground muons has been collected between January, 1989, and June, 1993, at a depth of 2090 m.w.e. in the SOUDAN 2 detector. This data-set has been passed through standard event reconstruction programs to give a sample of 14 million muons after run and event cuts. The trajectories of all muons in this data-set have been projected back onto the celestial sphere.

Software has been developed to compute the apparent motions of the Sun and Moon as viewed from t...
