Abstract : The pole of the galaxy was determined from measurements of galactic radiation at a frequency of 205 mc. The radiation is highly concentrated along a small circle close to the galactic equator. The coordinates of the pole are 266. 8 degree + or - 4.5 degree galactic longitude 87.43 + or - 0.34 degree north galactic latitude. The small circle has a north polar distance of 97 degree 17' + or - 11'. The relative intensity and approximate half width of the galaxy as a function of galactic longitude are presented. The experiment and certain consequences of the results are discussed.
