Hawc gamma-ray telescope captures its first image

A new set of "eyes" to capture the Universe's highest-energy particles and light has snapped its first image.

The High-Altitude Water Cherenkov Observatory or Hawc, high on a Mexican plain, now holds the record for the highest-energy light it can capture.

The image - of the shadow cast by the Moon as it blocks the light and particles - was shown off at a meeting of the American Physical Society.

Hawc is currently made of 30 detectors, but by 2014 will comprise some 300.
