Famous Places - Clumps

 | 752-4-52-929-734  | 151.382,0.071 | NED | SDSS | 
Sextans C is a globular cluster, although it is also listed sometimes (incorrectly) as a dwarf galaxy (UGC 05439).

 | 756-3-756-818-816  | 229.013,-0.123 | NED | SDSS | 
Globular cluster Palomar 5, a loose cluster of stars located in the halo of the Milky Way.

 | 756-2-484-695-949  | 188.283,-0.534 | NED | SDSS | 
UGCA 285, an ultra low surface brightness galaxy. Galaxies come in a variety of sizes and luminosities; this galaxy is barely detected even with the highly sensitive Sloan Survey camera.

 | 752-5-273-1141-250  | 184.483,0.436 | NED | SDSS | 
UGC 07332, a nearby, blue, low surface brightness galaxy.

 | 752-2-16-1259-1726  | 146.03,-0.658 | NED | SDSS | 
UGC 05205, and its companion. These two galaxies are very young, as indicated by their very blue colors. They mostly consist of diffuse gas and a few clumps, the disk and bulge have not formed yet.

 | 125-6-140-1158-121  | 9.895,0.86 | NED | SDSS | 
A nearby group of galaxies around NGC 0201. Galaxy groups typically have about 10-20 members.

 | 756-2-654-1184-1284  | 213.785,-0.4934 | NED | SDSS | 
VIII Zw 388, a picturesque group of galaxies, discovered and catalogued by the legendary Fritz Zwicky.

 | 94-4-141-276-858  | 355.918,0.311 | NED | SDSS | 
A clustering of galaxies at moderate redshift. One of the goals of the Sloan Survey is to characterize the amount of clustering and to provide clues as to how such clustering arose in the early universe.
