Bibliographic Code:


A southern sky survey of H I in the velocity range -340 to +380 km/sec has shown that a long filament of H I extends from the region between the Magellanic Clouds down to the south galactic pole and connects with the long H I filament discovered recently by Wannier and Wrixon and van Kuilenburg. There is also some evidence that this continues on the other side of the Magellanic Clouds and crosses the galactic plane at 306 deg galactic longitude. This filament, which follows very closely a great circle over its entire 180 deg arc across the sky, is given the name the Magellanic Stream.
