  • We investigate the relationship between the spatial distributions of stellar populations and of neutral and ionized gas in the Local Group dwarf irregular galaxy Sextans A. This galaxy is currently experiencing a burst of localized star formation, the trigger of which is unknown. We have resolved various populations of stars via deep UBV(RI)C imaging over an area with diameter ~53. We have compared our photometry with theoretical isochrones appropriate for Sextans A, in order to determine the… CONTINUE READING
