A Distinct Structure inside the Galactic Bar

Abstract

We present the result of a near-infrared ( ) survey along the Galactic plane, and JHK 10 .5 ≤ l ≤ 10 .5 s , with the IRSF 1.4 m telescope and the SIRIUS camera. versus color-magnitude diagrams b p 1 K H K s s reveal a well-defined population of red clump stars whose apparent magnitude peak changes continuously along the Galactic plane, from at to at after… (More)
