  • We present period‐luminosity relations for more than 23 000 red giants in the Large Magellanic Cloud observed by the OGLE-II microlensing project. The OGLE period values were combined with the 2MASS single-epoch JHKS photometric data. For the brighter stars we find agreement with previous results (four different sequences corresponding to different modes of pulsation in asymptotic giant branch stars). We also discovered two distinct and well-separated sequences below the tip of the red giant… CONTINUE READING
