  • With 10 years of high-resolution imaging data now available on the stellar cluster in the Galactic center, we present proper motions for more than 40 stars at projected distances ≤12 from Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*). We find evidence on a ≥2 σ level for radial anisotropy of the cluster of stars within 1'' of Sgr A*. For a brightness limit of K ~ 15.5, we find no evidence for a stationary source at the position of Sgr A* or for a source at this position that would be variable on a timescale of at… CONTINUE READING
