Strange blue spots found in space: it turned out to be hermit star systems

According to the researchers, these are not exactly galaxies and they exist only in isolation.

In a new class

star systems have only young blue stars, they are unevenly distributed and, apparently, exist in isolation from the parent galaxy.

These star systems, according to astronomers,look like blue drops in a telescope. They are about the size of tiny dwarf galaxies. All new star systems are close to the Virgo Cluster of galaxies and far from any potential host galaxies: they are more than 300,000 light-years away. Therefore, it is difficult to determine their origin.

Astronomers have discovered new systems afterhow another research team, led by Elisabeth Adams of the Netherlands Institute of Radio Astronomy, cataloged nearby gas clouds as potential locations for new galaxies. As soon as this catalog was published, several research groups began looking for stars that could be associated with these gas clouds.

The team went on to learn that most of the stars ineach system is very blue, young, and contains very little atomic hydrogen gas. This is important because stars are formed from atomic hydrogen gas, which later turns into dense clouds of molecular hydrogen gas, and then into stars.

Astronomers have concluded that star systemswere moving very fast. Astronomers expect that one day these systems will separate into separate clusters of stars and spread out across larger clusters of galaxies.
