As part of the Spaghetti Project Survey (SPS) we have detected a concentration of giant stars well above expectations for a smooth halo model. The position (l~350, b~50) and distance (~50 kpc) of this concentration match those of the Northern over-density detected by SDSS (Yanny et al. 2000, Ivezic et al. 2000). We find additional evidence for structure at ~80 kpc in the same direction. We present radial velocities for many of these stars, including the first published results from the 6.5m…

Tracing the tidal streams of the Sagittarius dSph, and halo Milky Way features, with carbon-rich long-period variables

We assemble 121 spectroscopically-confirmed halo carbon stars, drawn from the literature, exhibiting measurable variability in the Catalina Surveys. We present their periods and amplitudes, which are

Absolute Proper Motions to B ~ 22.5. V. Detection of Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Debris in the Direction of the Galactic Anticenter

We have detected a population of predominantly blue (B-V ≤ 1.1) stars in the direction l = 167°, b = -35° (Kapteyn Selected Area [SA] 71) that cannot be accounted for by standard star count models.

Exploring the Sagittarius Stream With SEKBO Survey RR Lyrae Stars

A sample of RR Lyrae (RRL) variables from the Southern Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt Object survey in regions overlapping the expected position of debris from the interaction of the Sagittarius (Sgr) dwarf

Tracing the Sgr Stream with 2MASS - Detection of Stream stars around Outer Halo globular clusters

We use infrared Color Magnitude Diagrams from the 2-Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS) to search for stars belonging to the tidal stream of the Sagittarius dwarf spheroidal galaxy (Sgr dSph) around

Is the dark halo of our Galaxy spherical

It has been recently claimed that the confined structure of the debris from the Sagittarius dwarf implies that the dark matter halo of our Galaxy should be nearly spherical, in strong contrast with

THE K GIANT STARS FROM THE LAMOST SURVEY DATA. I. IDENTIFICATION, METALLICITY, AND DISTANCE

We present a support vector machine classifier to identify the K giant stars from the LAMOST survey directly using their spectral line features. The completeness of the identification is about 75%

Fossil structure in the galactic halo: Trying to reconstruct the formation history of the Milky Way

Those that have looked up in the heavens will have noticed a band of silvery light across the sky, which is known as the milkyway. This light has its origin in millions ofdistant stars that are too

LIGHT CURVE TEMPLATES AND GALACTIC DISTRIBUTION OF RR LYRAE STARS FROM SLOAN DIGITAL SKY SURVEY STRIPE 82

We present an improved analysis of halo substructure traced by RR Lyrae stars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) stripe 82 region. With the addition of SDSS-II data, a revised selection method

The messy merger of a large satellite and a Milky Way-like galaxy

Aims. About 10 billion years ago the Milky Way merged with a massive satellite, Gaia-Enceladus. To gain insight into the properties of its debris we analyse in detail a suite of simulations that
