Energy E vs. total angular momentum L for the full sample of 7664 halo K giants (black and red dots). Energies for the stars have been estimated using a Milky Way–like potential consisting of an NFW dark halo and a double exponential disk using galpy (Bovy 2015). We flag the overdense region of stars marked in red in this EL plane as predominantly in the Sagittarius stream.
