Distribution of stars with − 5 ≲ z∕kpc ≤−1 in the dynamically selected stellar halo on the vR–vz subspace. Each black line represents the orientation of the velocity ellipsoid in this subspace as given by one sample in the MCMC chain. The inset shows the marginalized distribution of the angular slope of the black lines (tilt-angle). The blue line marks the expected orientation for a spherically aligned velocity ellipsoid.
