    The two Magellanic Clouds (or Nubeculae Magellani) are a duo of irregular dwarf galaxies visible from the southern hemisphere, which are members of the Local Group and are orbiting the Milky Way galaxy. Because they both show signs of a bar structure, they are often reclassified as Magellanic spiral galaxies. The two galaxies are. The two best-known irregular galaxies are the Large Magellanic Cloud and Small Magellanic Cloud (Figure ), which are at a distance of a little more than , light-years away and are among our nearest extragalactic neighbors. Their names reflect the fact that Ferdinand Magellan and his crew, making their round-the-world journey, were the.

    Magellanic Clouds (măj'əlăn`ĭk), two dwarf galaxies located in the far southern sky and visible to the unaided eye; they are classified as irregular because they show no definite symmetry or larger of the two, known as the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), is located mostly in the constellation Dorado; its angular diameter measures approximately 7°.   The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, two dwarf galaxies orbiting the Milky Way, are at the head of the gaseous stream. that all the other nearby .

      The Magellanic Clouds, two dwarf galaxies orbiting our galaxy, are at the head of a huge gaseous filament known as the Magellanic Stream. Since the Stream's discovery in the early s, astronomers have wondered whether this gas comes from one or both of the satellite galaxies. Portrayed in this image from ESA’s Planck satellite are the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, dwarf galaxies that are among the nearest companions of our Milky Way. The Large Magellanic Cloud, about , light-years away, is the large red and orange blob close to the centre of the image.

The Magellanic Clouds are two irregular, dwarf galaxies. They do not have a regular shape, and only have a few billion stars. The Magellanic Clouds can only be seen from the southern orbit the Milky Way galaxy. They, along with the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxy, are part of the Local Group of over 50 galaxies.

The two clouds are known as the. 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. This book addresses all those astrophysicists who take interest in the structure, kinematics and evolution of low-mass galaxies.

It comprises nine reviews of experts in this field, plus a host of shorter contributions and posters, all reflecting the enormous progress that has been made in the recent past, partly due to superb new observing facilities (e.g.

Keck, HST), but also to computing Cited by: 1. The Magellanic Clouds are comprised of two irregular galaxies, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), which orbit the Milky Way once every 1, million years and each other once every million years.

Lying only aboutlight years away, they were the closest known galaxies to the Milky Way until recently, when the Sagittarius and Canis Major dwarf. The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.

At a distance of about 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 10 Apparent size (V): ° × °.

This makes it the 3rd closest galaxy to us, behind the Sagittarius Dwarf and Canis Major Dwarf galaxies. Meanwhile, the Small Magellanic Cloud is located in the constellation of Tucana. Dwarf galaxies and their environment: 40th meeting of the Graduiertenkolleg, "The Magellanic Clouds and other Dwarf Galaxies: conference held Tue 23rd to Sat 27th January in the Physikzentrum in Bad Honnef, Germany.

This makes it the 3rd closest galaxy to us, behind the Sagittarius Dwarf and Canis Major Dwarf galaxies. Meanwhile, the Small Magellanic Cloud is located in the constellation of Tucana, about. This book, Galaxies, is a book on a grand scale, as is its subject. It is a lavishly illustrated coffee-table book the size of a small coffee table, the pages measure 13 inches by 15 inches, a huge footprint of a book, with most of the photographs and diagrams sized full-page/5(11).

The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is a satellite dwarf galaxy of the Milky Way that is among the closest galaxies to Earth. At aboutlight-years from Earth, the dwarf galaxy looks like a. Explanation. Magellanic Clouds: The two Magellanic Clouds are a duo of irregular dwarf galaxies visible from the southern hemisphere, which are members of our Local Group and may be orbiting our Milky Way e they both show signs of a bar structure, they are often reclassified as Magellanic spiral galaxies.

also known as 麥哲倫雲. This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the vibrant core of the galaxy NGCapproximately 50 million light-years away. Discovered by John Herschel inNGC is a great example of a starburst galaxy — a galaxy in which unusually high numbers of new stars are forming, springing to life within intensely hot clouds of gas.

The Magellanic Clouds continue to play a very important role in our understanding of the Universe. The fact that they are well observable only from southern latitudes was an important driver in the eastablishment of southern stations of such facilities as the Harvard College Observatory, and made looking at them a major part of the overall.
