They discover a tiny dwarf galaxy without defined structure

In another of his great astronomical discoveries, the nasa hubble space telescope just discover a tiny dwarf galaxy with no defined structure of which there was no information up to now, as explained by the POT.

Constituted by a diffuse band of stars that contain red gas bubbles that mark regions of recent star formation, the brand new galaxy named UGCA 307 hangs against a jagged backdrop of distant galaxies and lies roughly a few 26,000,000 light-years from Earthmore specifically, in the Corvus constellation.

“Appearing as just a little star patchUGCA 307 is a tiny dwarf galaxy without a defined structure, resembling nothing more than a misty patch of passing clouds,” he explained from NASA.

“This image is part of a Hubble project to explore all known nearby galaxies, giving astronomers information about our galactic neighborhood”, added the scientists to the burden of the find.

It should be remembered that up to now Hubble has already about three quarters of nearby galaxies investigated with enough information and details to detect the brightest stars and understand the stars that populate each galaxy.

For this reason, this new Hubble project is established explore the remaining quarter of the nearby galaxiestaking advantage of the short intervals in the NASA telescope observing program.


The absolutely sharp image of this new tiny galaxy recently disclosed by NASA was captured by the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) that was installed on Hubble in 2002, during the 3B Maintenance Mission.

By then, the ACS replaced one of Hubble’s original instruments, the weak object chamber, which was built by the European Space Agency ((ESA).
