A scant dwarf galaxy imaged a few days ago by Hubble. There isn't a whole lot to see here beyond the central smudge and the rather impressive area of star formation along the lower edge of the composition. It is interesting that all of the older, dimmer stars seem to come together in a smooth central region, while brighter, younger, individually resolved stars lie in the outer regions, much like a larger spiral galaxy.


This image marks the first moment I am fully caught up on all of the observations in this proposal. I can now simply process them as they come along instead of madly trying to catch up only to fall behind as each new image comes down.
