Searching for Stars in Compact High - Velocity Clouds . I First Results from VLT and 2 MASS


We investigate the hypothesis that compact high-velocity clouds (CHVC) are the " missing " dwarf galaxies of the Local Group, by searching them for populations of resolved stars. To this end we conducted two distinct tests based on optical and near-infrared single-star photometry. The optical and the near-infrared experiments complement one another; the… (More)
