UGC 8508 (2014)
One of the nicer images of a dwarf galaxy. Plenty of variety within and even a bit of star formation going on. I’m partial to I Zwicky 18 but hardly any dwarf galaxies have that much gas floating around freely. These smooth and faint smears of stars are far more typical, at least as far as the ones I’ve seen in the archive go.
Red: WFC3 IR F110W + WFC3 IR F160W
North is NOT up. It is 35.3° clockwise from up.
Hubble data is public domain. I do, however, request that you credit me for the processing of the image if you use it.
