The files in the above file run on Windows and Linux. Documentation is included. They contain simulated Cherenkov photon showers from Brian Humensky of VERITAS. The showers are of a 10, 100, or 1000 GeV photon primary; each dot is a particle at the start of its life/segment in the shower. Green dots are positrons, white dots are electrons. No gamma rays are shown - yet. The size of dots is proportional to their energy.
