galactic anticenter

(anticenter)
(direction opposite the galactic center)

The galactic anticenter is the direction in the celestial sphere directly opposite the galactic center (as seen from Earth). The Anticenter Shell is in that general direction.

I've seen considerable variation in cited coordinates, one being roughly 0546+2856.
