Structure and kinematics in the northeastern outer parts of the SMC

Abstract

We present preliminary results from a study of the radial velocities of red horizontal branch stars in the north-eastern outer parts of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). The sample is located in an area with a large line-of-sight depth of 15 kpc. It is suggested that there is a correlation between line-of-sight distance and radial velocity for these stars, with the more distant ones showing significantly higher velocities.
