Hubble Captures Best Ever Image of Triangulum Galaxy | Astronomy

The Triangulum Galaxy, which is also known as Messier 33 or NGC 598, is only three million light-years away and one of the most distant objects visible to the naked eye.

Scientists using the Hubble space telescope has obtained the most detailed images of the Triangle galaxy (Messier 33), which is located at a distance of three million light years from Earth. By combining this detailed observation with similar surveys of the Milky Way, Andromeda, and other galaxies in the Local Group, astronomers will be able to learn more about how stars form and evolve. The galaxy is usually visible as a faint, blurry object under dark-sky conditions. He subsequently documented when in their history these Local Group dwarf galaxies stopped making stars, or "quenched", and how this was affected by the proximity of the larger galaxies, including the Milky Way.

It measures only about 60,000 light years across, compared to the 200,000 light years of the much bigger spiral Andromeda Galaxy.

The full image contains nearly 25 million stars, and will help scientists study not just the Triangulum Galaxy, but Andromeda and our own.

The near-perfect distribution of stars within Triangulum has led researchers to believe that the galaxy has somehow avoided any major intergalactic collisions and has remained relatively untouched for aeons. Astronomer Steven Bellavia, an engineer at Brookhaven National Laboratory, coincidentally sent me an image he took of the galaxy with a 71mm refracting telescope and 20 megapixel astronomy camera over the course of two hours.

Andromeda and the Milky Way also surpass the Triangulum Galaxy in terms of the number of stars they contain. 'The star formation rate intensity is 10 times higher than the area surveyed in the Andromeda galaxy in 2015.' The Triangulum galaxy was chosen for this ultra-high-res photo op because it's positioned such that we can view its structure in great detail.

In contrast to the two larger spiral galaxies, Triangulum does not have a bright bulge at its centre - and it also lacks a bar connecting its spiral arms to the centre. One of these is the second brightest region of ionized hydrogen found across the entire Local Group-making it ideal for the study of stellar evolution.
