We report the discovery of two well-defined tidal tails emerging from the Hyades star cluster. The tails were detected in Gaia DR2 data by selecting cluster members in the 3D galactocentric cylindrical velocity space. The robustness of our member selection is reinforced by the fact that the sources depict an almost noiseless, coeval stellar main sequence in the observational Hertzsprung-Russel diagram. The spatial arrangement of the selected members represents a highly flattened shape with… Expand

The 800 pc long tidal tails of the Hyades star cluster
The tidal tails of stellar clusters provide an important tool for studying the birth conditions of the clusters and their evolution, coupling, and interaction with the Galactic potential. The GaiaExpand
Praesepe (NGC 2632) and its tidal tails
Aims. Within a 400 pc sphere around the Sun, we search for Praesepe’s tidal tails in the Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2) data set. Methods. We used a modified convergent-point method to find stars withExpand
HYADES STAR CLUSTER AND A NEW COMETS
We examined the influence of the Hyades star cluster on the possibility of the appearance of long-period comets in the Solar system. It is known that the Hyades cluster is extended along the spatialExpand
Spectroscopic membership for the populous 300 Myr-old open cluster NGC 3532
Context. NGC 3532 is an extremely rich open cluster embedded in the Galactic disc, hitherto lacking a comprehensive, documented membership list. Aims. We provide membership probabilities from newExpand
A Dynamical Model for Clustered Star Formation in the Galactic Disk
The clustered nature of star formation should produce a high degree of structure in the combined phase and chemical space in the Galactic disk. To date, observed structure of this kind has beenExpand
Extended halo of NGC 2682 (M 67) from Gaia DR2
Context. NGC 2682 is a nearby open cluster that is approximately 3.5 Gyr old. Dynamically, most open clusters are expected to dissolve on shorter timescales of ≈1 Gyr. That it has survived until nowExpand
Extended Tidal Tails of IC 4756 Detected by Gaia EDR3
We report the discovery of emerged tidal tails around open cluster IC 4756 (∼1 Gyr) based on 644 members identified from Gaia EDR3. Three-dimensional spatial positions and two-dimensional tangentialExpand

Modeling the Disruption of the Globular Cluster Palomar 5 by Galactic Tides
TLDR
The simulations unambiguously predict the destruction of Pal 5 at its next disk crossing in ~110 Myr, suggesting that many more similar systems could once have populated the inner parts of the Milky Way but have been transformed into debris streams by the Galactic tidal field. Expand
Gravitational tidal effects on galactic open clusters
We have investigated the 2{D stellar distribution in the outer parts of three nearby open clusters: NGC 2287 (M 41), NGC 2516, and NGC 2548 (M 48). Wide-eld star counts have been performed in twoExpand
