Abstract:

Synthesis observations of the 4830 MHz formaldehyde absorption originating near Sgr A are presented. The synthesized beamwidth is 20 arcsec in right ascension and 40 arcsec in declination. The velocity resolution is 6.2kms. The results suggest that the broad 40kms absorption feature arises in two separate dense molecular clouds behind, and moving away from, the center of the Galaxy.
