OBSERVATIONS AND QUALITIES OF THE CHAPEO GALAXY
DOMINIC J. BRONZE
The Sombrero Galaxy (M104/NGC 4594) is an unbarred get out of hand galaxy and a suspected member of the galaxy group within the the southern part of regions of the Virgo bunch. It is a nearby galaxy having a very unique appearance making it easy to recognize. Despite becoming easily recognisable, it is even now not totally understood. The actual process involved with its creation is not clear and it is not known where almost all its emissions come from, specifically in the sub-millimetre range. Its peculiar shape and composition means that this can be a prime candidate to help appreciate early get out of hand galaxies and the evolution and formation, while at the same time providing insight into large scale permanent magnetic fields in the radio wavelengths. The uniqueness of the Chapeo Galaxy can make it a prime technology target for a lot of astronomers and astrophysicists.
Messier Object 104 or more commonly, the Sombrero Galaxy, with a NGC designation of 4594 is known as a galaxy inside the constellation Virgo that was discovered on, may 11, 1781 by Caillou MГ©chain (English, 2007). It is just a member of a complex cloud of galaxies, however , it is unknown as to whether this can be a member of a suitable galaxy group (Tully, 1988). The Chapeo galaxy is different to other galaxies since it has a bright nucleus, a great unusually large central bulge and a prominent dirt lane in the inclined hard drive. These significant features provides the galaxy the appearance of a solideo and hence thier name (English, 2007).
Lying eight, 600kpc coming from Earth with coordinates RA 12h 39m 59. 3, DEC -11В° 37' 23'', it is 60, 000 light years across and with an apparent magnitude of 8. 98 (NASA, 2003), the Sombrero Galaxy is just beyond the limit from the naked vision and is easily seen through small telescopes, making it a stunning object to get amateur and professional astronomers alike. Found on the southern border of the abundant Virgo bunch of galaxies, it is one of the most massive objects in that group вЂ“ equivalent to 800 billion suns (NASA, 2003).
At first classified while an unbarred spiral galaxy, new observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope demonstrates that it is both a slim disk and a round and body fat one. These kinds of observations include found that it is round elliptical galaxy using a thin drive embedded inside and main known to show characteristics of two different kinds (NASA, 2003). As such, further more study of the galaxy will certainly lead to a much better understanding of galaxy evolution and solving many questions associated with the mesmerizing galaxy.
The remark of M104 was conducted at the Substantial Society of Victoria darker sky web page located at 36В° 48' 20. 189'' S, 144В° 40' 33: 539'' E. Observation was done in Monday September 2 nd 2013 by about 1930 to 2200. The Chapeo Galaxy was observed in 2109 regional time. This appeared as being a very distinctive galaxy, as opposed to the others viewed on in the evening, in that the combination of their large central bulge, and prominent dust lane gave it the appearance of a solideo from which this got its name.
APPEARANCE AND STRUCTURE
In the beginning, astronomers supposed that the resplandor was small , light which can be indicative of a spiral galaxy. After more extensive findings, it was soon found the fact that halo around the Sombrero Galaxy was bigger and more substantial than recently thought which can be indicative of your giant elliptical galaxy. This revelation only became noticeable through Spitzer's infrared eyes, which check out long-wavelength infrared light which could cut through the dust that hazes visible-light images. The newest views revealed that the Sombrero's glowing halo, which in visible light appeared light and small , is actually the right size and mass to be a large elliptical galaxy (Kormendy, 1996). The dirt lane is the Sombrero Galaxy's most unique characteristic and is in reality a shaped ring that encloses the bulge from the...
