Abstract

We report on the observation of the large-scale sidereal anisotropy of Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCRs) at median energy of ∼300 TeV. With long time and high-stability collection by the Tibet air shower array between October 1995 and February 2010, the data used in this analysis contains 3.1×108 air shower events with a median angular resolution of 0.3. A new anisotropy structure at 300 TeV is revealed, which significantly deviates from the picture of cosmic ray isotropic intensity and is different with previous anisotropy observation at Multi-TeV energy. The dominant feature is an excess region that localized at (α = 271.0, δ = 22.1), with a significance of 7.3σ (pre-trial) or 5.4σ (post-trial) and an optimized smoothing of 29. The maximum relative intensity region with an intensity of ∼ 2.0 × 10 3 is around (α = 255.0 , δ = −13.9), that is close to the highest excess region observed by IceCube at 400 TeV.
