Fig. 3.


All-sky view of orbital poles for the objects in the sample; the circles indicate the median of the 2000 Monte Carlo simulations, while the small points around each object plot the orbital poles from the individual simulations. The magenta circles contain 10% of the sky around the assumed VPOS pole, which is given as an “X” for the co-orbiting direction (orbital sense as most classical satellites, including the LMC and SMC), and a “+” for the opposite normal direction (counter-orbiting). Top panels: objects with Galactocentric distances between 0 and 50 kpc (left) and 50 and 100 kpc (right); bottom panels: objects with Galactocentric distances between 100 and 200 kpc (left) and in the putative Crater-Leo group (right).
