  • Observations of the highly isolated dwarf spheroidal galaxy KKs 3 = (KK2000) 03 with the Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys are presented. We measured the galaxy distance of 2.12 ± 0.07Mpc using the tip of red giant branch method. The total blue absolute magnitude of the galaxy is estimated as MB =− 10.8 mag. We briefly discuss the star formation history of KKs 3 derived from its colour-magnitude diagram. According to our calculation, the total stellar mass of the galaxy is 2.3… CONTINUE READING
