Observation of the Shadow of the Moon in Cosmic rays with the IceCube Neutrino Obervatory — •Johannes Merz, Erik Ganster, Christian Haack, Saskia Philippen, René Reimann, Lisa Schumacher, Jöran Stettner, and Christopher Wiebusch for the IceCube collaboration — III. Physikalisches Institut B, RWTH Aachen University

When new processes to calculate trajectories of muons passing through the IceCube Observatory are developed, the need for a calibration method arises. Due to the lack of a reliable standard candle, other options are considered, particularly with an all too familiar one rising over the horizon. The moon casts an observable shadow in the muon flux originating from air showers due to cosmic rays. This talk presents advancements in using this moon shadow as a calibration method for IceCube's reconstruction algorithms.
