In a coincidence experiment between gravitational wave detectors, the sidereal time analysis can provide very useful and powerful indications. We studied, with the help of a MonteCarlo simulation, the sidereal time pattern to be expected in such an experiment in the particular case of the resonant bars NAUTILUS and EXPLORER and for sources located in the Galactic Centre. It is shown that for linearly polarized gravitational waves the sidereal time pattern exhibits just a large peak at hour 3.5 and only a small peak at about hour 12.
