The meaning of the UHECR Hot Spots: A Light Nuclei Nearby Astronomy

In this paper we review all the up-to-date Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECR) events reported by AUGER, by Telescope Array (TA) and by AGASA in common coordinate maps. We also confirm our earliest (2008-2013) model, where UHECR are mostly made by light nuclei (namely He, Be, B), which explains the Virgo absence and confirms M82 as the main source for North TA Hot Spot. Many more sources, such as NGC253 and several galactic ones, are possible candidates for most of the 376 UHECR events. Several correlated map, already considered in recent years, are then reported to show all the events, with their statistical correlation values.
