(Nos 3-1 to 3-4) and No. 4 are the five members of a peculiar infrared quintuplet source, along the light of sight towards the Gal. Center Radio Arc.
The 4 sources GSC 3-1 to 3-4 are sometimes found with a roman numeral, as '3 I' to '3 IV' sources. See also [NWS90]. Ref:=1983PASJ...35..101K byKOBAYASHI Y. , OKUDA H., SATO S., JUGAKU J., DYCK H.M.
