Absolute position and peculiar motion of 1FGL J1018.6–5856 within the Galaxy in a view perpendicular to the Galactic plane (top panel) and parallel to it in the projected direction between the Galactic center and 1FGL J1018.6–5856 (bottom panel). The black dot represents the Galactic center, the orange star represents the Sun, the open red symbol represents SNR G384.3−1.8, and the blue star represents 1FGL J1018.6–5856 at the distance of 6.4 kpc. The blue arrow represents the peculiar motion of the source (in the RSR, after Galactic rotation subtraction) after 70 Myr for reference6. The blue ellipse represents the uncertainty on this motion. The gray ellipses provide a schematic picture of the Galactic plane. Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/R. Hurt/SSC/Caltech, The Mozilla Foundation.
