Cosmic Ray anisotropy is a key element in the quest to find the origin of the enigmatic particles. A well known problem is that although most of the likely sources are in the Inner Galaxy, the direction from which the lowest energy particles (less than about 1 PeV) come is largely from the Outer Galaxy. We show that this can be understood taking into account a possible reflection of charged particles by some 'walls' in the Interstellar Medium. This effect is too subtle to be explained by an ordinary diffusion theory and becomes apparent within the frames of the nonlocal relativistic transport theory, which involves conceptions of free motion velocity and path lengths with probability distribution of nonexponential type taken for a turbulent interstellar medium.
