Anomalous Evolution of the Dwarf Galaxy HIPASS J1321-31
We present Hubble Space Telescope/WFPC2 observations of the dwarf galaxy HIPASS J1321 - 31. This unusual galaxy lies in the direction of the Centaurus A group of galaxies and has a color-magnitude diagram with a distinctive red plume of luminous stars. This feature could arise from (1) a red giant branch if the galaxy were much nearer than previously recognized, (2) a peculiar asymptotic giant branch, or (3) an ∼1 Gyr old population of intermediate-mass red supergiants, which we find to be the...[Show more]
