Palomar 5 and its tidal tails: New observational results

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Sloan Digital Sky Survey data for the field of the cluster Pal 5 reveal the existence of a long massive stream of tidal debris spanning an arc of 10{sup o} on the sky. Pal 5 thus provides an outstanding example for tidal disruption of globular clusters in the Milky Way. Radial velocities from VLT spectra show that Pal 5 has an extremely low velocity dispersion, in accordance with the very low mass derived from its total luminosity.
