Nice pic.

The dwarf galaxy is one of the better ones in the fact that it contains a globular cluster.

Be interesting to find the age of that cluster & its metallicity. It probably has a lot to do with the episodic nature of star formation in dwarf galaxies as a large new blue globular cluster can blow a bubble bigger than the galaxy in the gas surrounding the system. Will take a long time for the gas to fall back in.

Have a nice day: Ag
