TeV Observations of Mrk 501 with the Milagrito Water Cherenkov Detector
for the Milagro Collaboration
The Milagrito water Cherenkov detector near Los Alamos, New Mexico,
operated as a sky monitor at energies of a few TeV between February 1997 and
May 1998 including the period of the strong, long-lasting 1997 flare of Mrk 501.
Milagrito served as a test run for the full Milagro detector. In agreement with
other measurements, an event excess with a significance of 3.7 s from Mrk 501
