The presence of large scale TeVs anisotropy in Milagro, ARGO, ICECUBE
and today Hawc sky remain a mistery: how may charged cosmic rays at tens
TeV remain correlated while being bent by local solar and galactic
magnetic fields in an expected smeared nearly homogeneous maps? We
considered UHECR as mostly light (or partial heavy) radioactive nuclei
whose decay in flight may feed by alfa and neutron as well as gamma
secondaries the TeVs anisotropy. We show in the overlapped UHECR and TeV
sky remarkable correlation, whose presence might point for nearby
galactic sources as Crab, Vela, Cygnus X3 and maybe nearest AGN as Cen
A. The ARGO multi-energy gamma-CR sky is somehow the most telling in
this source search connection.
