Abstract

We present observations of the Crab Nebula with the HAWC Observatory. HAWC is a gamma-ray shower array under construction at 4100 m on the volcano Sierra Negra in Mexico. When complete, HAWC will consist of 300 water-Cherenkov detectors (WCDs) measuring 7.3 m (diameter) by 4.5 m (height) and instrumented with four upward-facing large-photocathode PMTs. The modular design of HAWC allows for the operation of completed WCDs during construction. HAWC has been recording data with at least 28 WCDs since late 2012.
