Observation of the High-Energy Peaked BL Lac Object 1ES 1218+304 with STACEE


We present the analysis of recent high-energy gamma-ray observations of the BL Lac object 1ES 1218+304 with the Solar Tower Atmospheric Cherenkov Effect Experiment (STACEE). 1ES 1218+304 is an X-ray bright high-energy peaked BL Lac (HBL) that is also a source of TeV gamma rays, and has recently been detected by the atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes MAGIC and VERITAS. We will present results from STACEE observations of 1ES 1218+304 in the 2006 and 2007 observing seasons.
