Magnetized High Velocity Clouds in the Galactic Halo: A New Distance Constraint
High velocity gas that does not conform to Galactic rotation is observed throughout the Galaxy's halo. One component of this gas, H i high velocity clouds (HVCs), have attracted attention since their discovery in the 1960s and remain controversial in terms of their origins, largely due to the lack of reliable distance estimates. The recent discovery of enhanced magnetic fields toward HVCs has encouraged us to explore their connection to cloud evolution, kinematics, and survival as they fall...[Show more]
