Surely the most striking radio feature in the Galactic center may be a sheaf of straight vertical filaments (VFs,e.g., Yusef-Zadeh, Morris, & Chance 1984) of the radio arc. The VFs are believed to be the manifestations of strong magnetic field lines (≥1mG) which have been illuminated by some local relativistic particle source.
