Latest Irregular galaxies Stories
A newly released image from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope has exposed new details about the Large Magellanic Cloud.
New images from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope reveal blooming stars at the fringe of the Milky Way galaxy, far from its crowded core.
Shockwaves originating from the central starburst region of galaxy Messier 82 are most likely the source of bright clouds within a “cap” of gas clouds located some 40,000 light years away, astronomers have discovered.
An image of an isolated galaxy located approximately nine million light years from the Milky Way has been captured using the Hubble Space Telescope.
Astronomers using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory discovered the first pair of supermassive black holes in a spiral galaxy similar to the Milky Way.
A new Chandra X-ray Observatory image of Messier 82, or M82, shows the result of star formation on overdrive.
Lowell Observatory astronomer Deidre Hunter and her team studies small, diffuse galaxies to learn about star formation in those regions and, perhaps, shed light on the birth of the first stars after the Big Bang.
A U.S. astronomer says he discovered a galaxy in which gas is distributed over a much larger area than researchers expected to find. Macalester College Professor John Cannon said the giant disk dwarf galaxy he discovered has the largest size difference between stars and gas of any known galaxy.
X-ray data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and radio observations from the NSF's Very Large Array show that the hot gas (blue) in the middle of 3C442A is pushing apart the radio-bright gas (orange).
The M81 Group, containing the well known galaxies Messier 81 and Messier 82, is a group of galaxies within the constellation Ursa Major. Along with Messier 81 and 82 are several other galaxies with apparent brightness. The center, located at an approximate distance of 3.6 Mpc, is one of the nearest groups to the Local Group. The total estimated mass of the group is (1.03 Â± 0.17) Ã— 1012Mâ˜‰. The Virgo Supercluster contains the M81 Group, the Local Group, and some other nearby...
