The new generation of imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov detectors (HESS,
MAGIC and VERITAS) have brought about a dramatic growth in the field of
Very High Energy (VHE; E>150 GeV) gamma-ray astronomy
with the detection of ~70 sources over the last few years.
Observations in the southern hemisphere, in particular, have lead to the
discovery of numerous sources (including resolved images of
supernova remnants and pulsar wind nebulae) as well as the discovery of
new source classes (X-ray binaries, microquasars, galactic
unidentified sources, and the Galactic center).
