# A Study Of Very Inclined Showers In The Pierre Auger Observatory

Abstract : The Engineering Array of the Auger Observatory has been running successfully since 2001 and inclined showers have been recorded from the start. We have analysed the events with zenith angle $>$ 70$^0$ recorded between May and November 2002. The different algorithms developed to analyze these showers are also discussed. An preliminary discussion of a reconstructed event having 20 detectors hit is presented. Inclined showers will be detected by the full Auger Observatory and they will allow significant enhancement of the array aperture. High energy events will be seen as spectacular events with 30 or 40 tanks triggered and they will provide alternative information on muon content in air showers.
