Orbits and Origins of the Young Stars
in the Central Parsec

Figure 1: : The distribution of orbital planes as determined from individual stellar orbits. The normal vector for each star's orbital plane, plus the associated uncertainty in that vector, describes a cone in 3D space. This cone can be projected as an elliptical region onto a celestial sphere centered on the black hole. The projected 3 sigma region of the normal vectors are plotted on an Aitoff projection of this celestial sphere with clockwise rotators in red and counter-clockwise in blue. See article for more details. Image credit: J. Lu & collaborators.
