Flight through RAVE stars

This movie shows ~ 380,000 stars from RAVE DR4. Colors encode the heliocentric radial velocity of each star, from red for > 50 km/s over orange, yellow and cyan to blue for < -50 km/s. The movie starts with a map of the RAVE-stars, which is wrapped to a sphere with the sun in the center. The stars are then moving to their 3d distances, and we fly through the 3d distribution.

Rave-globe-DR4

RAVE observations covering Southern Hemisphere

Movie showing the distribution of RAVE stars on a rotating globe on the background of the Milky Way from the Photopic Sky Survey. Colours give stellar heliocentric radial velocities of stars (see General Images for colour bar).

Fly by movie – RAVE stars
Flyby movie showing the distribution of RAVE stars (based on the 4th data release, Kordopatis et al. 2013) compared to a model of the Milky Way disk. In blue are dwarf stars, in red the much brighter giant stars.

Overlapping maps for the dust and DIB absorption show a good correlation between both species when the projection in the Galactic plane is observed. The good correlation is not matched by the distribution away from the Galactic plane.

Comparison of absorptions due to DIBs north and south of the Galactic plane. There is no similarity between the northern and southern Galactic hemisphere, apart from the fact that there is more absorption at larger distances. Cavities, seen as blue arms stretching outwards, have different positions in the northern and southern hemisphere.
