Hubble got the galaxy in the constellation of the Triangle

It's our neighbor in a collection of dozens of galaxies called the Local Group, and was captured in unprecedented detail in image consisting of 54 Hubble fields of view stitched together, revealing almost 25 million individually resolved stars.

Triangulum is the third-largest galaxy in what's known as the Local Group of galaxies, which includes bigger neighbors Andromeda and our own Milky Way.

Under dark-sky conditions, it appears as a faint, blurry object in the constellation of Triangulum (the Triangle) and is a target for amateur astronomers. He subsequently documented when in their history these Local Group dwarf galaxies stopped making stars, or "quenched", and how this was affected by the proximity of the larger galaxies, including the Milky Way. After Andromeda and the Milky Way, it is the third largest galaxy in our cosmic neighbourhood, spanning 60,000 light years.

The image consists of 54 Hubble fields-of-view taken from February 2017 to February 2018, according to a release from the Space Telescope Science Institute.

In the past, star-formation histories in the Local Group have been measured one galaxy at a time, often using different analysis techniques.

The Triangulum Galaxy is part of our "Local Group".

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captured an incredibly detailed image of the Triangulum Galaxy. "Most notably, Triangulum's star formation is 10 times more intense than in the comparable Hubble panorama of the neighboring Andromeda galaxy".

The latest image was taken with Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys.

In contrast to the two larger spiral galaxies, Triangulum does not have a bright bulge at its centre - and it also lacks a bar connecting its spiral arms to the centre.

The abundance of gas clouds in the Triangulum Galaxy is precisely what drew astronomers to conduct this detailed survey.

"These detailed observations of the Triangulum Galaxy have tremendous legacy value - combined with those of the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and the irregular Magellanic Cloud galaxies, they will help astronomers to better understand star formation and stellar evolution", the European Space Agency said.

Which is weird, because newborn stars devour dust and gas, leaving less fuel for new celestial bodies to emerge.
