Description

Arrival directions of ultra-high energy cosmic rays from the direction to one of the brightest radio source Virgo A were studied with recent models of the Galactic magnetic field. The obtained image of this radiogalaxy is similar for all studied models and it is unique in the comparison with images of other possible point source candidates. We present a method suitable for identifying cosmic rays arriving from this close-by radiogalaxy.
