On the basis of experimental data obtained in the knee energy region with the GAMMA array an anomaly has been found in the mass composition of primary cosmic rays coming from the region of the VELA cluster. We used an original difference method which has high sensitivity, stability against accidental experimental errors and the possibility to separate anomalies connected with the laboratory coordinate system from anomalies observed in the celestial coordinates. The multiple scattering of the charged particles in the galactic magnetic fields makes it possible to study regions of the sky outside the direct visibility of the array.
