We find that the radial gradient of anomalous O remains constant during 1977-85 at ~10-15%/AU although the intensity changes by more than a factor of 100. These results can be used to deduce that most of the modulation of the intensities of these particles is occurring beyond 27 AU. We also find evidence for a latitudinal gradient of ~+3%/degree at low energies (7.1-10.6MeV/nuc).
