NGC 2366. A DWARF GALAXY
Spiral and barred spiral galaxies are impressive bodies due to their arms that extend from the center to the outer part of the galaxies.
However, there are some peculiar galaxies which are really interesting due to their strange appearance. NGC2366 is one of this objects.
NGC2366 is an irregular dwarf galaxy belonging to the Messier M81 and M82 group at about 10 million light-years from us.
This galaxy seems to be compatible with the Green Pea category, a compact blue object where star formation is taking place actively. Two blue nodes where stars are forming and the yellowish background galaxy form this nice complex.
The Hubble Space Telescope published a high resolution image of this galaxy on 2012.
