It is likely that this frenzy eventually will slow to a stop, and that over the next 10 billion years other smaller galaxies may merge with Sparky, causing it to expand and become a mammoth, sedate elliptical galaxy
Moving 1[degrees]20' North, we come to another bright group member, the elliptical galaxy
NGC 3377 (mag 10.
The Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy
(SagDEG) is one satellite galaxy interacting with the Milky Way.
Eventually they'll merge and form one large elliptical galaxy
The halo was found at the centre of the elliptical galaxy
NGC 7052 in the distant constellation of Vulpecula.
While ram-pressure stripping may produce lenticular galaxies in massive clusters, it cannot satisfactorily explain why every cluster, big or small, contains an ancient, red elliptical galaxy
at its hub.
While the galaxy's outskirts appear smooth and featureless, a classic feature of an elliptical galaxy
, its center displays remarkable dust lanes constrained within two symmetric spiral arms, which emerge from the galaxy's glowing core - one of the obvious features of a spiral galaxy," the European Space Agency (ESA) said in a (https://www.
The collision that presumably forms an elliptical galaxy
disrupts gas in the merging galaxies and provides "fuel" for the disk and acceleration mechanism.
6 billion years ago, this monster elliptical galaxy
breaks the previous record-holder by 200 million years.
At the center of the cluster is a large elliptical galaxy
containing the supermassive black hole.
An international team of researchers noticed just such a disturbance in the bright halo (shown) created by the supermassive elliptical galaxy
JVAS B1938+666 as it warps the view of a more distant galaxy.
Other topics include pulsar wind nebulae, absolute magnitude calibrations for the long period Cepheids, elliptical galaxy
formation, extragalactic globular clusters, diffuse atomic and molecular clouds, and the first results from the Spitzer Space Telescope.
