The stars were actually much farther away and part of the dwarf spheroidal galaxy
dubbed Bedin 1.
Our next stop is the Fornax Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
(Fornax dSph), a Milky Way satellite at a distance of 470,000 light-years.
The HSC camera allowed the team to distinguish an overdensity of stars, which turned out to be a faint dwarf spheroidal galaxy
Some specific topics explored include the supermassive black hole in the Milky Way, optical to near-infrared light curves of classical Cepheids, young stellar objects in the large Magellanic cloud, dwarf Cepheids in the Carina Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
, and helium in the Galactic bulge.
Leo I is a dwarf spheroidal galaxy
discovered in 1950 by Albert George Wilson on a photographic plate taken with the 48-inch Schmidt camera at Palomar Observatory.
A further object for confusion is Leo I--a dwarf spheroidal galaxy
. It is about magnitude 9.8, and lies close to Regulus, only 12 arcminutes away from Leo's brightest star.
Based on this evidence, "I immediately jumped to the conclusion that this was a dwarf spheroidal galaxy
," Irwin says.
Due to these, scientists have determined that it is a dwarf spheroidal galaxy
, according to a report published in the journal (https://academic.oup.com/mnrasl/article/484/1/L54/5288002) Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters.
The dwarf spheroidal galaxy
Leo I hides within the glare of 1st-magnitude Regulus.
A rather more challenging object for visual observing is UGC 10822, also known as the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy
. It has rather low surface brightness making a dark site essential, and it may be mistaken for a cluster.
SDG is categorized as a dwarf spheroidal galaxy
, the kind that is ideal for investigating the properties of dark matter since these galaxies
The most obvious is the massive Sagittarius Stream: These broad tidal tails of what was once a dwarf spheroidal galaxy
wrap around the poles of the Milky Way.
