Image of the Galactic Center taken from the VLA P band imaging
project. The 156' HPBW of the 90 cm VLA primary beam allows it to map
large fields of view quickly and efficiently (see abstract by Kassim &
Frail). The high central dark mass in Sgr A in the center of this
image was confirmed recently by Eckart &
Genzel (see also Editorial). The nature
of the non-thermal filaments visible here was discussed in a recent
workshop at UCLA (see Conference Summary).
