  Antlia Dwarf Galaxy Peppers the Sky with Stars

Antlia Dwarf Galaxy Peppers the Sky with Stars
Image credit: ESA/NASA

Uploader comment: The myriad faint stars that comprise the Antlia Dwarf galaxy are more than four million light-years from Earth, but this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image offers such clarity that they could be mistaken for much closer stars in our own Milky Way. This very faint and sparsely populated small galaxy was only discovered in 1997.
