Weird galaxy found a huge tail near us in 195000 light years

Using the Subaru telescope and the Canadian-French-Hawah telescope CFHT, an international team of astronomers observed an ultra-diffuse galaxy known as F8D1.

Ultradiffuse galaxies are galaxy with extremely low density, the largest of which are like the Milky Way, but only about 1% of the stars from our galaxy, and the secret of the RUD is still confusing to scientists who are trying to explain why these dim but large galaxies are so weird -- they don't burst into parts of the tide field of parenthood. Previously, "Hytech" was talking about dark matter oreols in this type of galaxy.

The F8D1 galaxy is the nearest Milky Way in the M81 group, approximately 12 million light years away, and the effective radius 8150 light years and luminous intensity at about 40 million suns.

Although F8D1 was discovered in 1998, it has not been studied much in the past, and now a group of astronomers led by Rocas Zemytis of Edinburgh University, Britain, have used Hyper Suprime-Cam of the Subaru and MegaCam telescope on CFHT for research on the CFHT.

In their observations, they found a gigantic flux of stars extending from F8D1 to the north-west towards the NGC 2976 and M81 galaxies. This characteristic can be seen on both sides of NGC 2976. The current is bent about 0.8 minutes to the west of the main body in small radii and changes direction over large radii, bending about 1.1 minutes to the east at a distance of 40 to 60 minutes.
