  • Aims. To study the kinematics and dynamics of the extreme outer halo of M87, the central galaxy in the Virgo cluster, and its transition to the intracluster light (ICL). Methods. We present high resolution FLAMES/VLT spectroscopy of intracluster planetary nebula (PN) candidates, targeting three new fields in the Virgo cluster core with surface brightness d own toB = 28.5. Based on the projected phase space information (sky positions and line-of-sight velocities) we separate g alaxy and cluster… CONTINUE READING
