I will review some of the recent results of galactic gamma ray astronomy, both in the GeV and TeV domain. I will focus on those results which shed new light on some aspects of the process of acceleration of cosmic rays in the Galaxy.

The TeV energy band is a very exciting window into the origin of high energy cosmic radiation, particle acceleration, and the annihilation of dark matter particles. Above a few hundred GeV, ground-based experiments of very large effective areas open a new domain to study extragalactic sources at intermediate redshifts, galaxy clusters, gamma ray bursts, AGN and their flaring states, extended...

MAGIC is one of the main detectors for performing ground-based observations of VHE gamma-ray sources. It consists of two 17m diameter Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. The telescopes are located at 2200 m a.s.l. at the Roque de los Muchachos, on the Canary island of la Palma, Spain. They are designed to observe gamma rays with energies above ~50 GeV. The system recently underwent a...
