        The tip of the "wing" of the Small Magellanic Cloud galaxy is dazzling in this new view from NASA's Great Observatories. The Small Magellanic Cloud, or SMC, is a small galaxy about , light-years way that orbits our own Milky Way spiral galaxy. The colors represent wavelengths of light across a broad spectrum. The Magellanic Clouds are two nearby dwarf galaxies that are visible in the southern night sky, which are part of our Local Group of galaxies. They are referred to individually as the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). Traditionally thought to be satellite galaxies, gravitationally bound to the Milky Way, more recent observations have challenged that long held.

      Investigating the disappearance of a secret Romulan fleet, the U.S.S. Titan, commanded by Captain William Riker, is unexpectedly propelled more than , light-years into the Small Magellanic Cloud. One of the Milky Way's satellite galaxies, the Cloud is also home to the Neyel, the long-sundered offshoots of Terran humanity, with whom the Federation has had no contact in over eighty years. The two Magellanic Clouds are dwarf galaxies that orbit the Milky Way Galaxy. The Large Magellanic Cloud, ab LY in diameter, is twice the size of the Small Magellanic Cloud whose size is approximately 7, light-years. The Large Magellanic Cloud is situated approximately , light years away, while the Small Magellanic Cloud is around , light-years away.

        Galaxy, any of the systems of stars and interstellar matter that make up the universe. Many such assemblages are so enormous that they contain hundreds of billions of stars. Virtually all galaxies appear to have been formed soon after the universe began, and they pervade all space that is viewable by modern telescopes. Two diffuse luminous patches in the southern sky, now known to be small irregular galaxies that are the closest to our own. The Large Magellanic Cloud is about , light years away and the Small Magellanic Cloud is about , light years.

The Large Magellanic Cloud and its neighbour and relative, the Small Magellanic Cloud, are conspicuous objects in the southern hemisphere, looking like separated pieces of the Milky Way to the naked eye.

Roughly 21° apart in the night sky, the true distance between them is roug the discovery of the Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy inthey were the. The Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), or Nubecula Minor, is a dwarf galaxy near the Milky Way.

Classified as a dwarf irregular galaxy, the SMC has a diameter of about 7, light-years, contains several hundred million stars, and has a total mass of approximately 7 billion solar masses.

The SMC contains a central bar structure, and astronomers speculate that it was once a barred spiral galaxy that Constellation: Tucana and Hydrus. Small Magellanic Cloud charts.

This is the southernmost point of Ar. The scientific designation is LMC (Large Magellanic Cloud). The Small Magellanic Cloud’s designation is SMC (Small Magellanic Cloud) and is a dwarf galaxy aroundlight-years away.

Navigation. Our ancient ancestors used the Magellanic Clouds as a tool for navigation. They were easily recognizable in the sky and were steady and reliable. This atlas of the Small Magellanic Cloud presents information regarding the nature and location of many of the thousands of objects of various kinds so far discovered in that galaxy.

The atlas consists of an explanatory booklet and two sets (yellow and blue) of identification charts which show variable stars, star clusters, emission nebulae, bright supergiants, and other interesting.

The Small Magellanic Cloud is considerably less massive than the Large Magellanic Cloud, and it is six times longer than it is wide.

This narrow wisp of material points directly toward our Galaxy like an arrow. The Small Magellanic Cloud was most likely contorted into its current shape through gravitational interactions with the Milky Way.

The Small Magellanic Cloud is the site of the climax of Robert A. Heinlein's novel Have Space Suit—Will Travel, in which the spectacular view of the Milky Way is admired.; In two Star Trek books from Pocket Books – The Lost Era: The Sundered and Titan: The Red King, the Small Magellanic Cloud is home to the Neyel, an offshoot of humanity who dominated several species native to the Cloud.

These charts show stars marked below 16th magnitude, with even more deep sky objects identified.

The Local Group is a small cluster of galaxies that includes the Milky Way. At least half of all galaxies in the Universe are thought to belong to similar groups. This authoritative volume provides a comprehensive synthesis of what is known about the Local Group.

It begins with a summary of each member galaxy, as well as those galaxies previously regarded as possible members. Meeting, 1 book John McFarland, 1 book P.

Aboutlight-years distant in the constellation Tucana, it is the fourth closest of the Milky Way's known satellite galaxies, after the Canis Major and Sagittarius Dwarf galaxies and the Large Magellanic Cloud. The astronomers analyzed 10 million individual stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud and million stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud, and determined their.

Beyond this Sagittarius dwarf galaxy lie two other small galaxies, aboutlight-years away. First recorded by Magellan’s crew as he sailed around the world, these are called the Magellanic Clouds (Figure ).
