Astronomy Science ~ Astronomers recently discovered a small of loneliness galaxy as well as a new neighbor to our Milky Way. The galaxy, called KKs3 it within 7 million light-years away in the direction of the Hydrus constellation.

These galaxies included in the township of galaxies called the Local Group, includes the Milky Way and Andromeda, the galaxy is very small, only a thousandth of the Milky Way. Remoteness makes galaxies are called "lonely". KKs3 said to be a lonely second galaxy in the Local Group after KKR25 discovered in 1999.

Dimitry Makarov of the Special Astrophysical Observatory in Karachai-Cherkessia, Russia, said, "Finding objects like KKs3 is a job that takes patience." According to him, even with sophisticated instruments such as the Hubble Space Observatory, find KKs3 very difficult.

KK3 negative image taken by the Hubble telescope. The core of this galaxy is a black object on the right top of the image, with stars scattered around. While the object to the left of two black spots on the top is near the globular cluster.

"However, with perseverance, we can slowly build our village map, which proved to be more solid than expected," said Makarov. Galaxies like KKs3 allegedly abundant around the Milky Way. Such galaxies are called spheroidal galaxy, the luminous galaxies are very dim because of the distance and size dwarfs. KKs3 discovery published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomy journal
