Astronomers recently discovered Nyx, a dwarf galaxy discovered making its way toward the center of this Milky Way, revealing a history of merging stellar bodies. Scientists are now report hidden new galaxies hiding in the Milky Way known as the South Pole Wall.

The Milky Way Galaxy is based on our star the Sun in which planets, dust, and other area objects are bound together through gravitational forces. The spiral galaxy comprises up to 100 billion stars.
Missions like this Global Astrometric Interferometer for Astrophysics (Gaia) from the European Space Agency has been running for at least six years to create an exact three-dimensional map of the entire Milky Way. The technology of today permits experts to detect bodies .
Seeing the galaxy was possible with missions like Gaia, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the Wisconsin H-Alpha Mapper (WHAM) in Chile, and many more. Astronomers are expecting the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope into space where it will’hunt for the formation of the galaxies, as well as look dust could now, where stars and planetary systems are forming,’ according to NASA.
On July 10, cosmographers printed a report at The Astrophysical Journal of some new hidden collection of galaxies located in the Milky Way called the South Pole Wall. The massive assembly was found by them as cosmographers developed new approaches to detect and map astral bodies never seen.
The South Pole Wall measures about 1.4 billion light-years across the entire selection of planets and stars that remained in hiding until now. The giant wall has been observed to be coincidental with Earth’s south west pole that the team compared’to the Sloan Great Wall in half of the space’ and is located opposite of those Shapley Supercluster.
Hidden in the Milky Way
The discovery was first made by Daniel Pomarède in Paris-Saclay University along with R. Brent Tully and a group from the University of Hawaii. Pomarède shared,’One may wonder how such a structure that is not-so-distant and big stayed unnoticed.’
‘This is a result of its location in a region of the sky which hasn’t been completely researched, and where immediate observations have been hindered by foreground patches of galactic clouds and dust,’ Pomarède continued. ‘We have discovered it due to its gravitational influence, imprinted in a sample of galaxies’ velocities.’
One deterrent to their observations that the South Pole Wall’s place behind the Chamaeleon cloud complex. The region includes absorption nebulas which are compact enough to maintain the light of the new collection of galaxies or II dim clouds, and Chamaeleon I, II.
100 Million Billion Stars
To map what the cosmographers could not see, they gathered data from prior surveys, measured their motion away from Earth and the surrounding gravitational forces, subsequently created a 2D and 3D map. Their outcome was a colossal structure of entire galaxies grouped together amounting to about 100 million billion stars.
It remains a mystery what the South Pole Wall would look like when the dark clouds have been removed in front of it or what all that special matter really contains. The educated guess the team is hundreds of thousands of galaxies filled with stars and planets not yet been discovered.
