These structures are pushed off the plane of the Milky Way
when a massive dwarf galaxy passes through the galactic disk.

Are Actually Outsiders
By tracking in detail flows of matter in the simulations, the team spotted signs of gassy material migrating from smaller galaxies to larger galaxies such as the Milky Way
, where it coalesced to form stars.
The bulge is a key signature of formation of the Milky Way
," said Ness, the study's lead author.

In this new study, researchers has culled previously published data that contained information about the distances between the Milky Way
, Andromeda and other close-by galaxies, including those that weren't satellites, that reside in and right outside an area referred to as the Local Group.
Instead of the dust lanes and star-filled patches of the visible-light Milky Way
, Fermi's whole-sky map features a thin, bright stripe of gamma rays emanating from the galactic plane, most of it coming from interstellar gas, pulsars, and stellar-mass black holes.
How did the Milky Way
- a galaxy 100,000 light-years across and roughly 13.
Characterizing the properties of the bulge stars can then provide important information to understanding the formation of the entire Milky Way
galaxy and that of similar, more distant galaxies.

appears to be an exotic interloper, preliminary data +suggest.
Washington, Nov 21 ( ANI ): Astronomers, who have long sought strong evidence that Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way
, is producing a jet of high-energy particles, have finally found it.
TEN per cent of the stars in the Milky Way
may have planets that support advanced life, scientists said today.

Many stars located on the edges of large spirals such as the Milky Way
are orbiting at such high speeds that they should fly off, but something has been holding on to them, which is believed to be a halo of dark matter that encircles the visible disc.
