Abstract / Description:We present the latest results of the on-going search for faint dwarf galaxies in the surroundings of the Milky Way within Pan-STARRS 1 data. Covering three quarters of the sky the on-going Pan-STARRS 1 survey is a photometric survey in optical and near-infrared bands. Applying a convolution method to identify overdensities, followed by a preliminary analysis of the object detection significance led to no obvious dwarf galaxy candidates in regions of the sky not previously surveyed by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This result questions the isotropy of the Milky Way dwarf galaxy satellite system.
