Is it possible to capture the entire plane of our galaxy in a single image? Yes, but not in one exposure: it took some planning to do it in two. The top and the bottom part of this image were taken six months apart and there you have it, the complete plane

Hello, asteroid Bennu! Our OSIRIS-REx spacecraft flew over two billion miles through space to meet you. Here, the spacecraft's camera captures a full rotation of the asteroid from only about 50 miles away:

Large, strangely dim galaxy found lurking on far side of Milky Way


Circling our galaxy is a stealthy giant. Astronomers have discovered a dwarf galaxy, called Antlia 2, that is one-third the size of the Milky Way itself. As big as the Large Magellanic Cloud, the galaxy’s largest companion, Antlia 2 eluded detection until now because it is 10,000 times fainter. Such a strange beast challenges models of galaxy formation and dark matter, the unseen stuff that helps pull galaxies together.

“It’s a very odd object and kind of exciting because we don’t know yet how to interpret all of its properties,” says Andrey Kravtsov of The University of Chicago in Illinois, who was not involved in the work.

The galaxy was discovered with data from the European Space Agency’s Gaia satellite, a space telescope measuring the motions and properties of more than 1 billion stars in and around the Milky Way. Gabriel Torrealba, an astronomy postdoc at the Academia Sinica in Taipei, decided to sift the data for RR Lyrae stars. These old stars, often found in dwarf galaxies, shine with a throbbing blue light that pulses at a rate signaling their inherent brightness, allowing researchers to pin down their distance.
