Scientists at the University of Arizona, USA, have discovered a new class of star systems that are not galaxies and are isolated. When viewed through a telescope, these systems look like blue blobs that are almost similar in size to small dwarf galaxies.
It is difficult for scientists to trace the origin of these star systems as they are far away from any possible parent galaxies by over 3,00,000 light years. Scientists are still studying the nature of these new stellar systems and hope to learn more about their origin.

The galaxy closest to the Milky Way is the Andromeda galaxy, which is around 2.5 million light years away.
