    The LMC is a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way and at a distance of , light years is the second or third closest galaxy to us. With a diameter of 14, light years it is the fourth largest member of the local group of galaxies. I'm looking for an introductory textbook on the Magellanic Clouds, something suited for a student about to obtain their Physics BS degree (ie: not a professional astronomer). I'm aware of The Magellanic Clouds, Westerlund (), but that book is: A) Not introductory. B) 20 years old.

      The Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) is a dwarf galaxy, the more petite twin of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). They are two of our closest galaxy neighbours in space — the SMC lies about 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 .

      The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds — two spectacular, naked-eye companion galaxies to our Milky Way — are very worthy of attention.

Our galaxy's brightest satellite systems are the Magellanic Clouds, obvious naked-eye objects deep in the southern skies. They are shown together here in a minute exposure on Ektachrome taken from Cerro Tololo, Chile (and scanned at fairly high density), using a Canon 50mm lens wide open at f/This view spans an area about 27 by 40 degrees.

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.

On March 28at the occasion of the dedication of the European Southern Observatory, some 90 astronomers from all over the world gathered at the ESO headquarters at Santiago de Chile for discussing problems of the Magellanic Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds book.

After all, they’re fascinating and beautiful Al-Rahman Al Sufi’s Book of Fixed Stars. Al Sufi, later known in. Both Magellanic Clouds are irregular dwarf galaxies orbiting our Milky Way galaxy, and thus are members of our Local Group of galaxies.

The Large Magellanic Cloud, at its distance oflight years, was longly considered the nearest external galaxy, until inthe Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy was discovered at only ab The Large Magellanic Cloud as seen by a modified DSLR camera and a small telephoto lens.

Portrayed in this image from ESA’s Planck satellite are the two Magellanic Clouds, among the nearest companions of our Milky Way galaxy. The Large Magellanic Cloud, about light-years away, is the large red and orange blob close to the centre of the image.

They came from Argentina, Australia, Chile, Mexico. In addition, the discovery of clusters in the outskirts of the Milky Way could also reveal whether the Magellanic Clouds collided with our galaxy in the past.

This is the apparent tendency where. Around 1 AM, Alain invited Alex and me to view various southern sky gems through his inch (centimeter) Dobsonian.

We viewed objects in the Magellanic Clouds, as well as 47 Tucanae, Omega Centauri (NGC ), Centaurus A (NGC ), and the nearly edge-on spiral galaxy NGC in Sculptor, among others. Explore news releases covering the Hubble Space Telescope mission's science themes and operations.

It looks like a luminous cloud, but it's really a dwarf galaxy, orbiting our Milky Way. The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (upper left and center left, respectively) float majestically above the Blanco 4-m telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile.

Photographs taken on the night of Februof the Large Magellanic Cloud, a companion galaxy to our own Galaxy, at Canada’s southern hemisphere observatory at La Silla, Chile, and at the Siding Springs Observatory in Australia, revealed a 6 th-magnitude object where only 12 th-magnitude blue supergiant stars had been observed before.

Below, we have the Large Magellanic Cloud in the center and the Small Magellanic Cloud above toward the right. Low clouds can be seen against the first glimpses of sunlight near Winston in Queensland, Australia. The bright star at the bottom (left) is Canopus (Alpha Carinae).
