Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014: Markarian 209 is classed as a blue compact dwarf galaxy. Galaxies of this type have a blue hue, compact size, rich amounts of gas, and low quantities of heavy elements. Markarian 209 contains diffuse gas, and star-forming regions pepper its core. This image captures it as it undergoes a burst of star formation, visible as the lighter blue cloudy region at the top right of the galaxy. Image released Dec. 15, 2014. %u2014 Tom Chao
