Movements of stars in the neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud provide information about the formation of galaxies

Scientists have mapped the motions of stars in the Milky Way’s satellite galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud, and revealed new evidence of barred galaxies.

The findings could offer new insights into the processes that shape and shape their structures galaxies, which contain bar-like star bands, researchers report in a new study. About 163,000 light years away Earththe Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) – a satellite dwarf galaxy of the Milky Way – is one of the closest galaxies to the Earth and is visible to the naked eye as a faint cloud in the southern hemisphere sky. The LMC is considered an irregular galaxy due to its single spiral arm and star bar structure offset from the galaxy’s center.
