Abstract / Description:The Galactic Center (GC) is a very interesting region for gamma ray astronomy.
Various possibilities for the production of very high energy (VHE) gamma rays
near the GC are discussed in the literature, like accretion flow onto the
central black hole, supernova shocks in Sgr A East, proton acceleration near
the event horizon of the black hole, or WIMP dark matter annihilation. At the Canary Island La Palma, the GC culminates at about 58 deg zenith angle (ZA). Between May and August it can be observed
with the MAGIC telescope at up to 60 deg ZA. The large zenith angle leads to a good sensitivity for energies in the TeV range. The
observation and analysis strategies are outlined and the status of the ongoing analysis is presented.
