We present results from a mosaic of nine Chandra observations of M86 and the surrounding field. We detect three main diffuse components: the Virgo intracluster medium (ICM), the extended halo of M86, and the cooler central and stripped gas of M86. The most striking feature is a long tail of emission, which consists of a plume ~4 -->' north of M86 and two main extensions emanating from the plume. We conclude that it is formed by ram pressure stripping of M86 as it falls into the Virgo Cluster… Expand
