Fig. 5.


Predicted orbital motion for VVV-CL160 colored according to a wide range of expected radial velocities, from −500 km s−1 (blue, retrograde orbits), through 0 km s−1 (green), to 500 km s−1 (red, prograde orbits). Top left: maximum height above the Galactic plane Z-max in kpc vs. orbital eccentricity. Top right: apogalactic distance in kpc vs. orbital eccentricity. Bottom left: apogalactic distance in kpc vs. perigalactic distance in kpc. Bottom right: maximum and minimum z-component of the angular momentum. We note that the location of the two red giant stars with measured radial velocities from Borissova et al. (2014), which are labeled 1 and 2, have RV1 = 185 ± 10 km s−1 and RV2 = 20 ± 14 km s−1, respectively.
