The Pierre Auger Observatory: Status and recent results

Abstract : The Pierre Auger Observatory is the new generation facility for the ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECR, ≥ 1017 eV) studies. The project aims at large aperture (> 7000 km^2 sr above 1019 eV) hybrid detection (combining air fluorescence and ground particle techniques) of the highest energy cosmic rays with the full-sky exposure (with 1 site per hemisphere). The Southern Auger Observatory in Argentina is nearing its completion. First results on the UHECR anisotropies search, and on the energy spectrum are discussed.
