Hubble Displays a Dwarf Spiral Galaxy


With a mass of about a hundredth that of the Milky Way, NGC 5949 is a relatively bulky example of a dwarf galaxy. Its classification as a dwarf is due to its relatively small number of constituent stars, but the galaxy's loosely-bound spiral arms also place it in the category of barred spirals.
