Abstract: We report the discovery of a new filamentary structure, G358.85+0.47, consisting of at least three mutually parallel but bent `strands', located about 1.5ˆ SW of the Sgr A complex. Unlike all the other known Galactic center filaments, G358.85+0.47 is oriented parallel to the galactic plane. Based on its appearance in a 20 cm image, we give it the name 'the Pelican' for further reference.
