Discovery of new Milky Way star clusters candidates in the 2MASS point source catalog.

Abstract (from CDS):

A systematic search of the 2MASS point source catalog, covering 47% of the sky, was carried out aiming to reveal any hidden globular clusters in our Galaxy. Eight new star clusters were discovered by a search algorithm based on finding peaks in the apparent stellar surface density, and a visual inspection of their vicinities yielded additional two. They all are concentrated toward the Galactic plane and are hidden behind up to AV=20mag which accounts for their late discovery. The majority of new clusters are associated with Hii regions or unidentified IRAS sources suggesting that they are young, probably similar to Arches or open clusters. Only one candidate has morphology similar to a globular cluster and the verification of its nature will require deeper observations with higher angular resolution than the 2MASS data.
