A new class of stellar systems has been identified- they’re not quite galaxies and only exist in isolation, according to the researchers at University of Arizona. The new stellar systems contain only young, blue stars.

The stellar systems which astronomers say appear through a telescope as “blue blobs” and are about the size of tiny dwarf galaxies are located within the relatively nearby Virgo galaxy cluster.
