Hunting the parent of the orphan stream. II. the first high-resolution spectroscopic study

Casey, Andrew; Keller, Stefan; Da Costa, Gary; Frebel, Anna; Maunder, Elizabeth


We present the first high-resolution spectroscopic study on the Orphan stream for five stream candidates, observed with the Magellan Inamori Kyocera Echelle spectrograph on the Magellan Clay telescope. The targets were selected from the low-resolution catalog of Casey et al.: three high-probability members, one medium, and one low-probability stream candidate were observed. Our analysis indicates that the low- and medium-probability targets are metal-rich field stars. The remaining three...[Show more]
