We present a search for new members of the 300 \kms\ stream (300S) near the dwarf galaxy Segue 1 using wide-field survey data. We identify 11 previously unknown bright stream members in the APOGEE-2 and SEGUE-1 and 2 spectroscopic surveys. Based on the spatial distribution of the high-velocity stars, we confirm for the first time that this kinematic structure is associated with a 24\degr-long stream seen in SDSS and Pan-STARRS imaging data. The 300S stars display a metallicity range of $-2.17… Expand
Statistical properties of substructures around Milky Way-sized haloes and their implications for the formation of stellar streams
Stellar streams originating in disrupted dwarf galaxies and star clusters are observed around the Milky Way and nearby galaxies. Such substructures are the important tracers that record how the hostExpand
Radial Velocities in the Outermost Disk toward the Anticenter
We measure the mean Galactocentric radial component of the velocity of stars ($v_R$) in the disk at 8 kpc$ 17$ kpc. Negative velocities are also observed in 21 cm HI maps, possibly dominated by localExpand
The Extended Gaia–PS1–SDSS (GPS1+) Proper Motion Catalog
The GPS1 catalog was released in 2017. It delivered precise proper motions for around 350 million sources across three-fourths of the sky down to a magnitude of $r\sim20$\,mag. In this study, weExpand
The Southern Stellar Stream Spectroscopic Survey (S5): Chemical Abundances of Seven Stellar Streams
We present high-resolution Magellan/MIKE spectroscopy of 42 red giant stars in seven stellar streams confirmed by the Southern Stellar Stream Spectroscopic Survey (S5): ATLAS, Aliqa Uma, Chenab,Expand


The 300 km s–1 Stellar Stream near Segue 1: Insights from High-resolution Spectroscopy of Its Brightest Star
We present a chemical abundance analysis of 300S-1, the brightest likely member star of the 300 km s −1 stream near the faint satellite galaxy Segue 1. From a high-resolution Magellan/MIKE spectrum,Expand
The least-luminous galaxy: Spectroscopy of the milky way satellite Segue 1
We present Keck/DEIMOS spectroscopy of Segue 1, an ultra-low-luminosity (M_V = –1.5^(+0.6)_(–0.8)) Milky Way satellite companion. While the combined size and luminosity of Segue 1 are consistent withExpand
A Complete Spectroscopic Survey of the Milky Way Satellite Segue 1: The Darkest Galaxy
We present the results of a comprehensive Keck/DEIMOS spectroscopic survey of the ultra-faint Milky Way satellite galaxy Segue 1. We have obtained velocity measurements for 98.2% of the stars withinExpand
The origin of Segue 1
We apply the optimal filter technique to Sloan Digital Sky Survey photometry around Segue 1 and find that the outer parts of the cluster are distorted. There is strong evidence for ∼1° elongations ofExpand
Hunting the Parent of the Orphan Stream: Identifying Stream Members from Low-resolution Spectroscopy
We present candidate K-giant members in the Orphan Stream that have been identified from low-resolution data taken with the AAOmega spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope. From modestExpand
This paper presents the first observational study of the kinematics of debris from a disrupting globular cluster. Seventy-four bright member candidates of the tidal stream of the cluster Palomar 5,Expand
The SEGUE Stellar Parameter Pipeline. III. Comparison with High-Resolution Spectroscopy of SDSS/SEGUE Field Stars
The authors report high-resolution spectroscopy of 125 field stars previously observed as part of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and its program for Galactic studies, the Sloan Extension for GalacticExpand
We present three-dimensional space velocities of stars selected to be consistent with membership in the Virgo stellar substructure. Candidates were selected from SA 103, a single 40'Expand
The Orbit and Origin of the Ultra-faint Dwarf Galaxy Segue 1
We present the first proper motion measurement for an ultra-faint dwarf spheroidal galaxy, Segue 1, using SDSS and LBC data as the first and second epochs separated by a baseline of $\sim 10$ years.Expand
Discovery of a cold stellar stream in the ATLAS DR1 data
We report the discovery of a narrow stellar stream crossing the constellations of Sculptor and Fornax in the Southern celestial hemisphere. The portion of the stream detected in the Data Release 1Expand
