Latest Andromeda constellation Stories
Don’t look now, Milky Way, but it appears that there’s a new dwarf galaxy in the neighborhood.
Astronomers and students have found a bridge of atomic hydrogen gas 2.6 million light years long between galaxies 500 million light years away.
An international team of astronomers studying the satellite galaxies surrounding Andromeda has for the first time observed the remnant of a merger between two low-mass dwarf galaxies, according to new research published online Sunday in the journal Nature.
Today, researchers at the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) released the first image of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) processed with the data analysis software developed for the Subaru Telescope's Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC).
Astronomers have discovered an unprecedented number of black holes in the Andromeda Galaxy (M31), one of the Milky Way’s nearest cosmic neighbors, using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.
University of California, Irvine scientists reported on Monday that they have measured the least massive galaxy in the known universe.
Using the NSF's Green Bank Telescope, astronomers have discovered large clouds of hydrogen lurking in our galactic neighborhood.
Of the three telescopes carried by NASA's Swift satellite, only one captures cosmic light at energies similar to those seen by the human eye.
A new project, named The Andromeda Project, is asking the public's help to search through Hubble Space Telescope images to identify star clusters and increase our understanding of how galaxies evolve.
Andromeda Constellation -- Andromeda is a constellation representing the princess Andromeda, in the northern sky near Pegasus. The constellation takes the general shape of a long, dim, straggly letter "A". It is most notable for containing the Andromeda Galaxy. Notable features The brightest star in Andromeda, Î± Andromedae, called Alpheratz or Sirrah, makes up with Î±, Î², and Î» Pegasi an asterism called the Great Square of Pegasus. This star was once considered part of...
Andromeda Galaxy -- The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as M31, or the object 31 on the catalog of Messier, is the other giant spiral galaxy in the Local Group, together with our galaxy, the Milky Way. It is at a distance of approximately 2.36 million light years or 725 kpc, in the direction of the constellation Andromeda, and it will probably merge in the future with our galaxy, to form a giant elliptical. With a mass of about 1.5 times more than the Milky Way, it is the dominant galaxy...
