We establish that the Magellanic Stream (MS) is some 40 degrees longer than previously known with certainty and that the entire MS and Leading Arm (LA) system is thus at least 200 degrees long. With the GBT, we conducted a ~200 square degree, 21-cm survey at the MS-tip to substantiate the continuity of the MS between the Hulsbosch & Wakker data and the MS-like emission reported by Braun & Thilker. Our survey, in combination with the Arecibo survey by Stanimirovic et al., shows that the MS gas… Expand
THE MAGELLANIC STREAM SYSTEM. I. RAM-PRESSURE TAILS AND THE RELICS OF THE COLLISION BETWEEN THE MAGELLANIC CLOUDS
We have analyzed the Magellanic Stream (MS) using the deepest and the most resolved H I survey of the Southern Hemisphere (the Galactic All-Sky Survey). The overall Stream is structured into twoExpand
The Tidal Origin of the Magellanic Stream and the Possibility of a Stellar Counterpart
We present an N-body model that reproduces the morphology and kinematics of the Magellanic Stream (MS), a vast neutral hydrogen (H I) structure that trails behind the Large and Small MagellanicExpand
Clues to the ‘Magellanic Galaxy’ from cosmological simulations
We use cosmological simulations from the Aquarius Project to study the orbital history of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and its potential association with other satellites of the Milky Way (MW).Expand
The tidal features of the Magellanic Cloud System
The Magellanic System at a distance of ∼ 50 kpc from the Milky Way (MW), is a prime target in the study of stellar populations, star formation histories and galactic dynamics in low metallicityExpand
A PRIMEVAL MAGELLANIC STREAM AND OTHERS
The Magellanic Stream (MS) might have grown out of tidal interactions at high redshift, when the young galaxies were close together, rather than from later interactions among the Magellanic CloudsExpand
PROBING THE STRUCTURE AND KINEMATICS OF THE TRANSITION LAYER BETWEEN THE MAGELLANIC STREAM AND THE HALO IN H I
The Magellanic Stream (MS) is a nearby laboratory for studying the fate of cool gas streams injected into a gaseous galactic halo. We investigate properties of the boundary layer between the cool MSExpand
Substructures and tidal distortions in the Magellanic stellar periphery
We use a new panoramic imaging survey, conducted with the Dark Energy Camera, to map the stellar fringes of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds to extremely low surface brightness V $\gtrsim$ 32Expand
New Constraints on the Nature and Origin of the Leading Arm of the Magellanic Stream
We present a new precision measurement of gas-phase abundances of S, O, N, Si, Fe, P, Al, Ca as well as molecular hydrogen (H_2) in the Leading Arm (region II, LAII) of the Magellanic Stream (MS)Expand
Towards a complete understanding of the Magellanic Stream Formation
The Magellanic Clouds have lost most of their gas during their passage by the Milky Way, a property that has never been successfully modeled. Here we use accurate and mesh-free hydrodynamicExpand
A COMPACT HIGH VELOCITY CLOUD NEAR THE MAGELLANIC STREAM: METALLICITY AND SMALL-SCALE STRUCTURE
The Magellanic Stream (MS) is a well-resolved gaseous tail originating from the Magellanic Clouds. Studies of its physical properties and chemical composition are needed to understand its role inExpand
