NGC1052-DF4 & DF5

Ultra diffuse galaxies subject to much debate regarding their dark matter content. A deep set of Hubble observations here are intended to help settle the distance to these strange, ghostly objects. I definitely don't want to be part of any such debate, so I'm just going to stop here and let you enjoy the picture. DF4 is the brighter one, to the upper left. DF5 is to the lower right.


Red: ACS/WFC F814W
