UGC 685 (2014)

This dwarf is a little less jumbled looking than the others. There are a couple of pink clouds of H-alpha to go with some star formation and a few fuzzy balls of globular clusters scattered around. This dwarf looks slightly yellower on one side and slightly bluer on the other. I’ve noticed this in a couple of others but wasn’t sure if I was screwing up somehow. Sometimes it’s hard to tell. I’m pretty sure this one is, though.

LEGUS data did not cover the left fourth or so of the image so as usual I compensated by using the R / pseudo-green / B
method with the remaining two channels, F814W and F606W.

This image is possible thanks to the individuals responsible for Proposal 10210, Proposal 6569, and the LEGUS Survey.

Red: HST_10210_14_ACS_WFC_F814W_sci + hst_06569_03_wfpc2_f656n_wf_sci
Green: HST_10210_14_ACS_WFC_F606W_sci
Blue: WFC3 / UVIS F275W + F336W + F438W (All three from LEGUS)

North is NOT up. It is 117° clockwise from up.
