Fluorescence Detector Site, Black Rock Mesa, Millard county, Utah
Utah

One of three buildings housing the Fluorescence Detectors which make up part of the Telescopic Array used to detect cosmic rays.  This building is located at Black Rock Mesa, south of Deseret, Utah.  The fluorescence detector building houses 12 fluorescence detector telescops, 4 in each bay.  Two of the three bays are visible in this panorama.

"The Telescope Array project is an international collaboration involving research and educational institutions in Japan, Taiwan, China, Russia, South Korea, and the United States. The experiment is designed to observe ultra-high-energy cosmic ray air showers using a combination of ground array and air-fluorescence techniques. It is located in the high desert in Millard County, Utah (USA) at about 1,400 meters (4,600 ft) above sea level."
