The Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey (LEGUS) is a multiwavelength Cycle 21 Treasury program on the Hubble Space Telescope. It studied 50 nearby star-forming galaxies in 5 bands from the near-UV to the I-band, combining new Wide Field Camera 3 observations with archival Advanced Camera for Surveys data. LEGUS was designed to investigate how star formation occurs and develops on both small and large scales, and how it relates to the galactic environments. In this paper we present the photometric… 

Star Formation Histories of the LEGUS Dwarf Galaxies. II. Spatially Resolved Star Formation History of the Magellanic Irregular NGC 4449

We present a detailed study of the Magellanic irregular galaxy NGC 4449 based on both archival and new photometric data from the Legacy Extragalactic UV Survey, obtained with the Hubble Space

Star Formation Histories of the LEGUS Spiral Galaxies. I. The Flocculent Spiral NGC 7793

We present a detailed study of the flocculent spiral galaxy NGC 7793, part of the Sculptor group. By analyzing the resolved stellar populations of the galaxy, located at a distance of ∼3.7 Mpc, we

Star formation in the nearby dwarf galaxy DDO 53: interplay between gas accretion and stellar feedback

We present the results of a multiwavelength study of the nearby dwarf galaxy DDO 53 – a relatively isolated member of the M 81 group. We analyse the atomic and ionized gas kinematics (based on the

Star Formation Histories of the LEGUS Dwarf Galaxies. III. The Nonbursty Nature of 23 Star-forming Dwarf Galaxies

We derive the recent star formation histories (SFHs) of 23 active dwarf galaxies using Hubble Space Telescope observations from the Legacy Extragalactic UV Survey. We apply a color–magnitude diagram

Distance to the Dorado Group

Based on the archival images of the Hubble Space Telescope, stellar photometry of the brightest galaxies of the Dorado group: NGC 1433, NGC 1533, NGC 1566 and NGC 1672 was carried out. Red giants

Gaseous nebulae and massive stars in the giant H I ring in Leo

Context. Chemical abundances in the Leo ring, the largest H I cloud in the local Universe, have recently been determined to be close to or above Solar values. This is a finding that is incompatible

Revisiting Attenuation Curves: The Case of NGC 3351

Multiwavelength images from the far-UV (∼0.15 μm) to the submillimeter of the central region of the galaxy NGC 3351 are analyzed to constrain its stellar populations and dust attenuation. Despite

A search for satellite galaxies of nearby star-forming galaxies with resolved stars in LBT-SONG

We present results from a resolved stellar population search for dwarf satellite galaxies of six nearby (D < 5 Mpc), sub-Milky Way mass hosts using deep (m ∼ 27 mag) optical imaging from the Large

LEGUS and Hα-LEGUS Observations of Star Clusters in NGC 4449: Improved Ages and the Fraction of Light in Clusters as a Function of Age

We present a new catalog and results for the cluster system of the starburst galaxy NGC 4449, based on multiband imaging observations taken as part of the LEGUS and Hα-LEGUS surveys. We improve the

Candidate LBV stars in galaxy NGC 7793 found via HST photometry + MUSE spectroscopy

Only about 19 Galactic and 25 extragalactic bonafide luminous blue variables (LBVs) are known to date. This incomplete census prevents our understanding of this crucial phase of massive star
