We have conducted 12CO observations with the Nobeyama 45-m telescope in the area of Tycho's supernova remnant. These high-resolution (16″) data show that the molecular cloud surrounds the SNR along the northeastern boundary. We suggest that Tycho's SNR and the molecular cloud are located at comparable distances within the Perseus arm and that they are physically interacting. We also discuss the possible connection between the molecular cloud and the Balmer-dominated optical filaments and propose that the preshock gas may be accelerated within the cosmic-ray and/or fast neutral precursor.
