Are LMC, SMC approaching the Milky Way ?? Are the LMC & SMC approaching towards, or receding from, the MWG ? According to my calculations, using the data from here, and accounting for a ~220 km / sec velocity of the Sun, towards galactic longitude b=90 degrees, the LMC is moving nearly 40km/sec, towards b=90 degrees, in the rest frame of the MWG, while the SMC is moving nearly +100km/sec in the same said direction. If the calculations are correct, both the LMC & SMC seem to be moving towards the MWG. But is this correct?
