Observations with the Green Bank Telescope of 21 cm H I emission from the high-velocity cloud complex H suggest that it is interacting with the Milky Way. A model in which the cloud is a satellite of the Galaxy in an inclined, retrograde circular orbit reproduces both the cloud's average velocity and its velocity gradient with latitude. The model places complex H at R = 33 ± 9 kpc from the Galactic center on a retrograde orbit inclined ≈45° to the Galactic plane. At this location, it has a mass… Expand
