Sorry for the continued delays folks. Please rest assured we will try to get back to normal schedules as soon as possible.

(1) was a famous observatory. The ‘pattern’ of detection was as in (2), which led to the name.

What is (1) called?

Answer:
The Fly’s Eye detector, at Utah. Notable for many things, but most probably for the OMG particle.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.

    The High Resolution Fly’s Eye or HiRes detector was an ultra-high-energy cosmic ray observatory that operated in the western Utah desert.

    The High Resolution Fly’s Eye used larger mirrors and smaller pixels as compared with the original Fly’s Eye, hence the name.

    The Fly’s eye high resolution cosmic ray detector in Utah – so named because the detectors see the sky in a pixelated fashion resembling a fly’s eye.
