What is Magellanic clouds | full exploration of Magellanic clouds | color, size, mass of Magellanic clouds.

The Magellanic cloud galaxy. (SMC) and (LMC

The Magellanic clouds ( or Nubecula magellani ) are two irregular dwarf galaxies that appear or visible in the southern celestial hemisphere; They are member of the local group galaxies and are revolving or orbiting the Milky Way galaxy. Because both once show sign of structure, they are often re-classified as Magellanic spiral galaxies.

The apparent mass of ( LMC ) Large Magellanic Cloud is ~10 billion M☉
The apparent mass of ( SMC ) Small Magellanic cloud is ~ 6.5 billion M☉

THE LARGE MAGELLANIC CLOUDS : The large Magellanic Clouds is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. At a distance of about 50 kilopersecs, the LMC is the second and or third closest galaxy to the Milky Way galaxy, the Sagittarius dwarf known as the spherical and potentially dominant dwarf, known as the canis major over density. The radius of large Magellanic cloud is 7,000 light year.

THE SMALL MAGELLANIC CLOUDS : The small Magellanic cloud, or Nubecula minor, is a dwarf galaxy near the Milky Way galaxy. This dwarf galaxy is classified as a dwarf irregular galaxy, the SMC has a diameter of approximately 7,000 light years, consists of the several hundred million stars, and a total mass of about 7 billion solar masses.

WHO DISCOVERED THE MAGELLANIC CLOUDS : These fellow or companion galaxies were named for the Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan, whose crew discovered them during the first voyage around the world ( 1519-1522 ). These Magellanic clouds, either of two satellite galaxies of the Milky Way galaxy, the gaint or vast star system of which our planet Earth is a minor component.

HOW CAN I SEE MAGELLANIC CLOUDS : If you want to see the Magellanic clouds, the easiest way to ind the galaxy is to draw an imaginary line from the previous serious to the right of Canopus and follow the line to the LMC. In the northern latitudes, a large or the giant Magellanic cloud can be see from the south of latitude 20°N.

HOW MANY STARS ARE THERE IN THE MAGELLANIC CLOUDS :  If we talk about the large Magellanic clouds than There are 3,000 crores stars exist in the Magellanic cloud, and if we talking about the small Magellanic clouds than there are hundred million stars.

HOW FAR IS MAGELLANIC CLOUDS FROM THE EARTH : The large Magellanic cloud is 158,200 light year far from the Earth and the small Magellanic cloud is 199,000 light year far from the Earth.

WHAT IS THE COLOR OF MAGELLANIC CLOUDS : The large Magellanic cloud is mostly seen in blue color. The blue color in the picture, seen most prominently in the center bar represent starlight from the older star. The small Magellanic cloud is in the color of red and green sow colder material seen by Herschel, while blue is warm dust seen by spitzer.

HOW OLD IS MAGELLANIC CLOUDS : The large Magellanic cloud is 1.101 billion light year old and small Magellanic is 900 million light year approximately.

WHY THE MAGELLANIC CLOUD ARE SEPARATED OR DISTORTED : The Magellanic clouds have seen both teir shapes distorted by the gravitational interaction with our Milky Way galaxy. As these galaxies pass through the Milky Way galaxy, their gravitational pull also mis-shaped the outer bars of our galaxy ( Milky Way ). ... The Gravitational interaction with the LMC would have separated that galaxy into 2 parts.

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LMC IN 1987 : In the year 1987, a supernova explosion occurred in the large Magellanic cloud - the brightest supernova seen in 300 years. For a short time, the supernova was appear or visible without eyes. The supernova remnant is still being studied as it continues to develop and expand.
