Young accreted globular clusters in the outer halo of M31
We report on observations of two newly discovered globular clusters in the outskirts of M31 made using the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph (GMOS) instrument on Gemini North. These objects, PAndAS-7 (PA-7) and PAndAS-8 (PA-8), lie at a galactocentric radius of 87 kpc and are projected, with separation 19 kpc, on to a field halo substructure known as the South-West Cloud. We measure radial velocities for the two clusters which confirm that they are almost certainly physically associated with...[Show more]
