Information about the Andromeda Galaxy with descriptions and pictures.
Information about Halton Arp's 1966 "Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies," aimed chiefly at amateur astronomers. Includes summary data, observing tips, and images. By Dennis Webb.
Determining the distances to nearby galaxies.
HST and ISO Results.
Some useful information about the formation of galaxies.
Includes a set of notes by Nick Strobel. Topics include the structure of the Milky Way, the characteristics of other galaxies, and finding distances to other galaxies.
Many selected links to websites dedicated to galaxies.
NASA Windows to the Universe. Includes illustrations and introductory information about a variety of galaxies.
Contains information of the types, dynamics, observations, and formation of galaxies.
A review article for non-specialists.
Contains information about the growth of various galaxies. Also includes images, news, and a glossary.
Lectures given in 2011 by Julien Devriendt at Oxford University, which include an introduction to galactic dynamics and a primer on hierarchical galaxy formation.
Wikipedia article about the several schemes in use by which galaxies can be classified.
Interactive project that allows the user to participate in a large-scale project of galaxy research: classifying millions of galaxies found in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.
Data, observation notes about globular clusters within the galaxy.
Project at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to search for supernovas in very remote galaxies. This provides an accurate means of measuring the distances to remote galaxies and thereby determining the age of the universe.
Classifications, properties, and structures and dynamics.
Includes a catalog of globular clusters, photos, and brief description.
Purpose is to understand the creation of galaxies and the universe has evolved. Plans to study distant galaxies at optical, infrared, and radio frequencies.
Research group at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Observatory studying the structure and evolution of galaxies, especially stellar dynamics, stellar populations and galaxy formation from the point of view of optical and near-infrared astronomy.
A collection of hundreds of review articles. Topics covered include normal, peculiar and interacting galaxies, as well as galaxy evolution and galaxy clusters. Part of Caltech's "LEVEL 5" knowledgebase of extragalactic astronomy and cosmology.
Java-based viewing tool that allows the user to view galaxy surveys such as the Hubble Deep Field, using their browser.
Spiral galaxies with short descriptions and photos.
