Categories of galactic X-ray sources taken from the Uhuru catalog are discussed. The Uhuru sources are classified by galactic latitude into galactic and extra galactic populations. The galactic sources include a group of highly luminous objects near the galactic center, the compact X-ray sources in binary systems, and the X-ray emitting supernova remnants. Galactic center sources are briefly dicussed and compact object binary sources are examined in detail. The supernova remnants are considered, and brief remarks are made about sources in globular clusters and transient X-ray sources.
