Fig. 2


Aitoff projection of a simulation run about 200 Myr after perigalacticon. Green dots represent all satellite particles (only every 5th particle is plotted), while the MEPs are marked by red stars. The disk and bulge of the host galaxy are also shown as black mass-density contour lines. The median distance of the MEPs is  ~ 60 kpc, comparable to the Galactocentric distances of the observed HVSs. The MEPs are concentrated to confined area on the sky, in this case enclosed by a circle with angular radius 15°.
