|Eqien's Object, CelWP-G M1|
Eqien's Galaxy is a dwarf irregular satellite of Triangulum, with many strange anomalies and species. It is 6440 light-years across, containing approximately 46 million stars and many nebulae with active stellar formation. As the galaxy's centre is a Quasi-star and not a black hole, star formation will likely continue to go on for some time. Notably, at its center, Eqien's Galaxy contains the only known specimen of a Quasi-star, Alaru.
Unlike some irregular galaxies, Eqien's Galaxy has a rate of star formation comparable to many galaxies like the Milky Way and Andromeda, save for its slightly low metallicity.
Notable Objects[edit | edit source]
- The galactic core, with the quasi-star Alaru, the abandoned base at Wezeren, and many other interesting things.
- The Distos Cluster, with many interesting stars such as Distos, Kimea, Vellerar, and others.
- The Dream Nebula, a beautiful nebula with many objects like Nuskuris, Daharrus, and the hot Wolf-Rayet star Birling.
- The Amethyst Nebula, a small pink Stromgen Sphere surrounding the Be star Adamion. It is located close to the Dream Nebula.
Globular Clusters[edit | edit source]
Eqien's Object has four globular clusters, one of which is close to the center of the galaxy. These globular clusters are mostly dead, and not much is known about them.
