Left: geometry of the toy model for inverse Compton scattering of X-ray emission from the cone of shocked pulsar wind (dark shaded region in both panels). Right: zoom on the region delimited by a dashed rectangle on the left, showing possible sources of high energy electrons. The direction to the observer is ≈60° during the GeV flare (full line arrow in both panels).
