Cosmic Search NGC-4625

NGC 4625 Galaxy:

   This photograph was taken by NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows the dwarf galaxy NGC 4625, which is about 30 million light years away in the constellation of Canes Venatici. The canes venatici is referred to as The Hunting Dogs. The Image was captured with advanced Camera for Surveys.

Astronomers looked at NGC 4625 in different wavelengths in the hope of solving this cosmic mystery. By the data from ultraviolet light, the disk of galaxy appears four times larger than one picture depicted alone. This image reveals, there are many old, young galaxies and young stars are forming in the outer region of the NGC 4625. These young stars are only around one billion years old and about 10 times younger than the stars. At first astronomers assumed that the formation of NGC 4625 was triggered by the interaction with NGC 4618.

They finally states that the NGC 4618 is causing to lose all its spiral arm of NGC 4625. The gas in the outermost regions of the dwarf galaxy NGC 4618 has been strongly affected by NGC 4525.
