Fornax is a constellation in the southern sky. Its name is Latin
for furnace. It was identified in the eighteenth century and is now
one of the 88 modern constellations. Fornax has been the target of
investigations into the furthest reaches of the universe. The
Hubble Ultra Deep Field is located within Fornax, and the Fornax
Cluster, a small cluster of galaxies, lies primarily within Fornax.
At a meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society in Britain, a team
from University of Queensland described 40 unknown "dwarf" galaxies
in this constellation; follow-up observations with the Hubble Space
Telescope and the European Southern Observatory's Very Large
Telescope revealed that ultra compact dwarfs are much smaller than
previously known dwarf galaxies, about 120 light-years across.
