In our high resolution CO J = 1-0 images taken with the 2x2 focal-plane array receiver at the 45 m telescope of Nobeyama Radio Observarory, we find a peculiar compact (< 5 pc) cloud, CO0.024-0.028, at about 5' north from the center of the Galaxy. CO0.024-0.028 stands out its extremely broad line width (DV ~300 km/s) and enhanced gas kinetic temperature (Tk ≥ 70 K). Recent observations with JCMT have revealed that CO0.024-0.028 is overwhelmingly bright in its CO J = 3-2 line emission, appearing even brighter than the Galactic center circumnuclear disk. In fact, CO0.024-0.028 is the dominant source in the vicinity of the nucleus of our Galaxy, and it clearly has a conspicuously high density and temperature. We are about to propose that CO0.024-0.028 may have been accelerated, heated and compressed by one or more SNRs younger than 1E4 years.
