The Third EGRET Catalog consists of 271 sources: 5 pulsars, 1 solar flare, 66 high-confidence blazar identifications, 27 possible blazar identifications, 1 likely radio galaxy (Cen A), 1 normal galaxy (LMC), and 170 unidentified sources. A sixth EGRET pulsar is shown in the figure for completeness (at l=69, b=3), but is seen only in pulsed data, and so is not included in the catalog.
