    The Magellanic Clouds are irregular galaxies that share a gaseous envelope and lie about 22° apart in the sky near the south celestial pole. One of them, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), is a luminous patch about 5° in diameter, and the other, the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), measures less than 2° across. The Magellanic Clouds are visible to the unaided eye in the Southern Hemisphere, but.   A diffuse fog in the southern sky, the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) is one of our Milky Way galaxy's closest neighbors. Because it cannot be seen from most of North America, northern Africa. The two Magellanic Clouds are irregular dwarf galaxies orbiting our Milky Way galaxy, and thus are members of our Local Group of Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and its neighbour and.

New Aspects of Magellanic Cloud Research Proceedings of the Second European Meeting on the Magellanic Clouds Organized by the Sonderforschungsbereich „Evolution of Galaxies“ Held at Heidelberg, Germany, 15–17 June Editors: Baschek, Bodo.

Book Review: New views of the magellanic clouds / Astronomical Society of the Pacific, Cited by: 3. The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are locatedandlight-years from Earth, and stre and 7, light-years across, respectively.

2 days ago  New images, taken with the megapixel Dark Energy Camera (DECam) on the Víctor M. Blanco 4-m Telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory, represent a portion of the second data release from the Survey of the MAgellanic Stellar History (SMASH), the deepest, most extensive survey of the Magellanic Clouds (high-resolution images: the Large Magellanic Cloud and the Small.

J This newly released ESO image reveals a new view of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. Each of the thousands of spots in this new image represents a distant star, and the glittering blue holes reveal glimpses of our neighboring galaxies, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.

New published research explores that history. The new research paper is titled “ A History of the Magellanic Clouds and the European Exploration of the Southern Hemisphere.

The Magellanic Clouds--a pair of nearby, satellite galaxies--are caught in a dynamic struggle with each other and with our Milky Way. Given their proximity, these satellite galaxies offer a unique opportunity to study in detail the dynamics and composition of other galaxies.

This book provides a comprehensive synthesis of our knowledge concerning the Magellanic Clouds. More than 60 years ago, the Magellanic Clouds provided crucial impetus for the construction of large telescopes in the Southern hemisphere and the foundation of ESO.

The Magellanic Clouds are our nearest example of dwarf galaxies in an early stage of a minor merger event. The Magellanic Clouds Besides being spectacular nighttime objects, the Magellanic Clouds are popular targets for professional astronomers.

In fact, they’ve been featured in. Al Sufi was an ancient Persian astronomer that mentions the Large Magellanic Clouds in his book called Book of Fixed Stars.

In the ’s, two Italian explorers became the first Europeans to describe and observe the Magellanic Clouds. Within a few years, many Europeans were using the clouds to help during travel at sea.

The Magellanic Clouds are two of our closest neighbours, in galactic terms. The pair of irregular dwarf galaxies were drawn into the Milky Way’s. 13 September The VISTA survey of the Magellanic Clouds, led by Maria-Rosa Cioni of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP), reveals a remarkable new image of the Large Magellanic Cloud.

The telescope, part of ESO’s Paranal observatory, has been surveying this galaxy and its sibling, the Small Magellanic Cloud, as well as their surroundings, in unprecedented detail for. 2 days ago  While the Magellanic Clouds are close by and rather small, mapping them in detail still requires deep and efficient imaging.

The DECam – a massive camera built for observing millions of galaxies with the goal of understanding how dark energy pushes them apart – is a perfect tool for also keeping a close eye on these young stellar neighbours.

The portrait features the giant nebula NGC and its neighbour NGC which together form part of a vast star-forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of. 2 days ago  Astronomers have been utilizing the Darkish Vitality Digital camera (DECam) in Chile as a type of child monitor, retaining their.

On the Edge of Magellanic Clouds (Russian: На краю Магеллановых облаков) is a fiction book, published in It includes three stories: "On the Edge of Magellanic Cloud" by Andrei Gusev, "Nights after" (Russian: Ночи вослед) by Sergei Aman and "Silent abode" (Russian: Тихая обитель) by Oleg Birukov.

These are stories from Russian life at the end. 2 days ago  Wide-angle view of the Large Magellanic Cloud. (CTIO/NOIRLab/NSF/AURA/SMASH/Nidever) Astronomers have been using the Dark Energy Camera (DECam) in Chile as a.

The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds Originally uploaded by Ken Schwarz. The Magellanic Clouds are the nearest neighbours to our own Milky Way galaxy – the Large Magellanic Cloud is aboutlight years away, and contains about 10 billion stars (about 1/10 the number of stars in the Milky Way).

Its smaller companion, the Small Magellanic Cloud, is aboutlight. Download PDF Abstract: We compare the Gaia DR2 and Gaia EDR3 performances in the study of the Magellanic Clouds and show the clear improvements in precision and accuracy in the new release.

We also show that the systematics still present in the data make the determination of the 3D geometry of the LMC a difficult endeavour; this is at the very limit of the usefulness of the Gaia EDR3.

Ten months in the making, this incredible mosaic of nearly 4, photos gives a detailed look at the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). This satellite galaxy is visible as a faint cloud for those living in the Southern Hemisphere, so getting an close-up vision of the LMC is a real treat.

As gas within these clouds collapses, new stars still are rapidly born, and data from SMASH suggest this flurry of activity was initially triggered by a collision between the massive and little Magellanic.

This Hubble Space Telescope image shows the Large Magellanic Cloud and the many star-forming regions within it. Nearlylight-years from Earth, the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, floats in space, in a long and slow dance around our clouds of gas within it slowly collapse to form new stars.

2 days ago  The most impressive view ever of the Magellanic Clouds, the only dwarf galaxies visible to the naked eye. Astronomers have been using the Dark Energy Camera (DECam) in Chile as a sort of baby monitor, keeping their eye on a region of nearby space absolutely packed with star nurseries.

View The Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, is pictured in this handout photo released on Ap As the Milky Way's gravity pulls on the gas clouds of its. It Took 50 Nights of Observations to Capture New Data on the Magellanic Clouds Part of the SMASH dataset showing an unprecedented wide-angle view of the Large Magellanic Cloud.

With this new capability, ESO says astronomers using survey data were able to determine the ages of some 10 million individual stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud. History. The Magellanic Clouds have been known since ancient times by indigenous people from South America and Africa, and from the first millennium in Western first preserved mention of the Large Magellanic Clouds is believed to be in petroglyphs and rock drawings found in claim that they are mentioned by the polymath Ibn Qutaybah (d.

CE), in his book on Al-Anwaa. First CCD observations of Magellanic Cloud variable stars from the Mt John University Observatory, New Zealand.- The anomalous A-type supergiants in the Magellanic clouds — evidence for post-red supergiant evolution.- The variable star population of NGC OH/IR stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud: the observations.-Price: $ The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.

At a distance of around 50 kiloparsecs (≈, light-years), the LMC is the second- or third-closest galaxy to the Milky Way, after the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal (~16 kpc) and the possible dwarf irregular galaxy known as the Canis Major on readily visible stars and a mass of approximately   The Small and Large Magellanic Clouds (SMC and LMC) have been well studied, but these dwarf satellite galaxies continue to inspire new discoveries.

Among them is the origin of the Magellanic Stream — a swath of neutral hydrogen trailing the Magellanic Clouds and spanning more than half a million light-years. History. The first written record of the Magellanic Clouds was by the Persian astronomer Al Sufi.

In he wrote the Book of Fixed called the Large Magellanic Cloud al-Bakr (the Sheep) "of the southern Arabs". He wrote that the Cloud could not be seen from northern Arabia and Baghdad, but could be seen at the strait of Bab el Mandeb (12°15' N).). This is the southernmost point of Ar. 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. Large Magellanic Cloud. The LMC or Large Magellanic Cloud is considered to be one of the Milky Way’s dwarf satellite galaxies.

Atlight-years away, it’s one of the galaxies that is fairly close to Earth. When viewed from Earth it has an appearance across the skies of the Southern Hemisphere that look something like a very faint cloud. COVID Resources.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

This second data release contains new data from DECam on the central and most complex regions of the Magellanic Clouds. The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are the largest satellite galaxies of. The full SMASH study, including the view shown in these images, covers an area 2, times larger than the full Moon and required about 50 nights of specialized second data release contains new DECam data on the central and more complex regions of the Magellanic Clouds.

The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), satellite galaxies of the Milky Way, are close enough that astronomers can. The depths of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds — satellite galaxies of our own Milky Way — can be seen in new photos taken by a dark energy camera.

Why it matters: The images could reveal never-before-known details about our galactic neighbors — and insights into how other dwarf galaxies evolve. Details: The Survey of the MAgellanic Stellar History's (SMASH), the most extensive. 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 approximatelylight years away, while the Small Magellanic Cloud is aroundlight-years away.

The Local Group is the galaxy group that includes the Milky Way. It has a total diameter of Smith's Cloud, a high-velocity cloud, betw light years from Earth and 8, light years from the disk of the Milky Discovery of a large number of Ultra Faint satellites in the vicinity of the Magellanic Clouds".
