- Distance From Earth: 3.1 Million Lightyears
- Number of Stars: Unknown Amount (More Pop Up Often)
This galaxy gets its name from those that discovered it: Max Wolf, Knut Lundmark, and Philibert Jacques Melotte. It happens to be an irregular galaxy or a galaxy without a regular shape. They can often look chaotic and all over the place, unlike the beautiful nebulas that you see with other galaxies. Most of its stars seemed to form roughly 13 billion years ago, which could be why they have many red and yellow stars. Yet it continues to develop new stars often. Most of its newer stars are in the southern region. While unknown if it contains alien worlds where life exists, it does have planets that are in habitable zones.
The galaxy is a little over 3 million lightyears from Earth. If they saw us in a telescope, they’d see an Earth that slowly began to show cooling at the poles. Around this point, the North Pole would have become covered in ice. On top of this, shortly beforehand, the Australopithecus Afarensis species of human popped up. They looked heavily like what an ape might look like today. These beings were short but stocky, likely still swinging in the trees. Their bodies were heavily prepared for cooler temperatures, but they wouldn’t have had a major society or language.
