A star nursery is present in the center of this galaxy. It has given birth to thousands of stars over millions of years.
The center of the galaxy is a type of region known as an H II nucleus. This is the ionized region of atomic hydrogen. Thousands of stars have been born in this region so far. In a blog post, NASA has told that every hot and blue star produces ultraviolet light. It ionizes the gas around the galaxy.
It has been told that the Caldwell 5 Galaxy is quite bright. But it is covered by cosmic gas, dark dust and bright stars. According to scientists, it would be one of the brightest galaxy in our sky, if it was not covered by so many clouds. It is claimed that the existence of this galaxy is billions of years old.
British astronomer William Frederick Denning discovered this galaxy in the early 1890s. It is located in the constellation Camelopardalis, best viewed during early winter. Only people living near the equator in the Southern Hemisphere can see it north in the sky in late summer or early summer. Because it is a faint galaxy, it will be difficult for people in areas where the weather is polluted or hazy to see it.
